Overview

The Adventure Filmmakers Workshop is an exceptional chance for independent and emerging filmmakers to advance their skills under the guidance of two of the world’s premier and proven adventure filmmakers. During a jam-packed 10 days in the fall, participants will hone their craft, strengthen their skills, whilst networking with fellow filmmakers, industry insiders, and decision-makers. 

This all takes place within the core of the Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival, where epic stories are told through the eyes of adventurers, authors, photographers, and filmmakers from around the globe.

What does the program offer?

Workshop sessions will help participants sharpen their narrative, vision, organize their workflow, develop audio and editing techniques, and perfect their pitches. Applicants are encouraged to focus on one specific film project that they have in mind and to be prepared to share it with the group. 

We pack the days with hands-on practice, lively discussion, and brainstorming. Including inviting industry insiders as guest speakers, offering rare access to potential mentors, collaborators, sponsors, and backers. In groups you will shoot, edit and post-produce a short film project to present and review with the group and faculty. Our faculty promote an open, interactive, and creative atmosphere.

On-campus lodging and meals are provided — all that participants have to do is focus on their craft and soak up the inspiration. Participants will have access to the VIP screening rooms and viewings of film screening and simulcast presentations of the 2023 Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival. 

Who should apply?

This workshop is designed for emerging filmmakers with a few projects already under their belt. To get the most from the program, applicants should have a strong desire to take the next step in all aspects of their filmmaking, including pre-production, pitching, location skills, the handling of the edit, and distribution. Past participants have included elite athletes transitioning to filmmaking, adventurers wanting to expand to different media platforms, and established filmmakers wanting to break into the adventure genre. 

A strong knowledge base of technical sound, camera, and editing skills is essential. This program is not aimed at those who only want to explore what it is like to be an adventure filmmaker – the Adventure Filmmakers Workshop is for those who are committed to filmmaking as a life choice.
