Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour logo

The Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour, a program of The Banff Centre, is the largest, and one of the most prestigious, mountain festivals in the world. Hot on the heels of the festival held every fall in Banff, Alberta, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour hits the road. 

With stops planned in about 390 communities and 35 countries across the globe, this year’s tour features a collection of the most inspiring action, environmental, and adventure films from the festival.

Traveling to exotic landscapes and remote cultures, and bringing audiences up-close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2017/2018 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.

From approximately 300 films entered into the annual festival, award-winning films and audience favorites are among the films chosen to travel the globe.

Each evening in St. Louis will feature different films on all things mountain including skiing, climbing, paddling, snowboarding, mountain biking, and mountain culture. To see all the films, plan on attending both nights.

No reserved seating! First come - first seated.

Remember, we show different films each night. You can attend both nights and not see any repeats.

Venue - The Sheldon

The Sheldon Memorial, named after Walter Sheldon who founded the St. Louis branch of the Ethical Society, was designed by the noted 1904 World's Fair architect Louis C. Spiering and opened its doors in 1912 as the home of the Ethical Society of St. Louis. Speakers such as Margaret Mead, Thurgood Marshall, R. Buckminster Fuller, Norman Cousins and Martha Gellhorn have spoken from its stage and the St. Louis Chapter of the League of Women Voters was founded in The Sheldon's Green Room. The day after music was first heard in The Sheldon, the headline in the St. Louis Globe Democrat declared: "Acoustics found perfect." Musicians and music loves have been enjoying those perfect acoustics for over 100 years and the Sheldon Concert Hall has been called "The Carnegie Hall of the Midwest."

Important Information on Parking



It is always smart to carpool when coming down to the Sheldon Theatre, Fox Theatre, and Powell Symphony Hall Theatre area.


DURING CONSTRUCTION: Limited parking is still available on The Sheldon's west lot. Additional parking is available at the Fox Theatre lot on Washington Boulevard and at meters along Washington Blvd., Olive Street and North Spring Ave. Parking is also available at the Scottish Rite garage on nights when the Fox Theatre has a performance.

Purchase Tickets

Remember: Each night is a completely different group of films - no repeats.  

Tickets are $19.50 per person.

FYI - To ALL of our customers  - due to a few minor complaints we are putting this information out to our customers to help with transparency.

• We almost were unable to have BANFF this year due to not having a facility to show the film. Almost ALL theatres were booked for these two dates due to already having films booked and it being Easter week. The other possible theatres were too small to handle this event. It is hard to book a theatre for this event because we have to wait until we get the exact dates for the St Louis showing.
• If we were unable to show this film this year we would have lost our ability to show any future BANFF films. The St Louis area and our customers would have lost this event. Thank Goodness for the Sheldon!
• We had to use MetroTixs because they are contracted with The Sheldon Theatre. MetroTix has a $3 processing fee. We have to go through the Sheldon website to get to the BANFF MetroTix tickets. We have no control over this, and we are not happy about it either. We direct our customers to our website because we need them to have the extra information, and a place they can go back to for information prior to the show. 
• The ticket cost is $2 higher than last year to try to recoup some of the cost for having it at The Sheldon. We will still probably be in the “red” after the showing. We provide this Film to our customers because this is in The Alpine Shop’s DNA. It is a Alpine Shop and St Louis tradition! 

We are sorry for any discomfort this might cause our customers.


Have a wonderful day!
