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, and network and mingle 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. Our faculty promote an open, interactive, and creative atmosphere. 

We pack the days with hands-on practice, lively discussion, and brainstorming. We’ll welcome industry insiders as guest speakers, offering rare access to potential mentors, collaborators, sponsors, and backers. The workshop includes on-campus lodging and meals — all that participants have to do is focus on their craft and soak up the inspiration.

Who should apply?

This workshop was designed for filmmakers. 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. 

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.

A strong knowledge base of technical sound, camera, and editing skills is essential. 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.

Enrolment is limited to 24 participants.

Please note: As we re-open campus and welcome artists back to programming in a safe and mindful way, we have made the difficult decision to restrict recruitment for on-campus programs to those currently residing in Canada. We continue to monitor the situation closely and look forward to the future relaxation of travel measures that will allow us to welcome international artists once again.
