Banff audiences will be taken on a journey around the world, as they get to know the remarkable characters behind the hair raising on-screen action sports. This year’s Banff Tour will offer audiences an exhilarating adventure through the big screen as they paraglide through the Alps, mountain bike on the Isle of Skye, surf in the Arctic Circle, ski in Patagonia, kayak in Canada’s British Columbia and much much more – through 16 Tour films.

The Tour is much more than a series of incredible film nights. It brings together people with a wide range of outdoor passions who return every year to enjoy the fantastic community feeling of a Banff screening and leave with new enthusiasm and inspiration for their own adventures.

The popularity of the UK and Ireland leg of the Banff World Tour is quickly growing. In 2015, the Tour is expected to bring together more than 45,000 adventure lovers, celebrating the outdoors in unique venues right across the UK and Ireland. The World Tour travels the globe every year, to over 45 different countries from Australia through to Antarctica, being enjoyed by more than 400,000 people worldwide.

Now for two The Edinburgh Reporter readers there is the chance to win a pair of tickets, one set for the matinee and one for the evening showcase on Saturday 24 January 2015 at The Festival Theatre.
