Each year in November, The Banff Centre hosts the Banff Mountain Film Festival, celebrating the spirit of adventure and mountains! The top films from that festival go on tour, and Chippewa Nature Center is proud to host one of the stops on the World Tour. See some of the best mountain films of 2017 featuring the people who live, play and enjoy those areas through high adventure, humor and a love for the out-of-doors! CNC will host two screenings at Bullock Creek Auditorium, 1420 S Badour Rd in Midland, with different films each night.
