Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour
Thanks for helping us celebrate one of North America's largest screenings of the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour .
The Boone, NC Banff Film Festival World Tour screenings were scheduled to take place at the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts at Appalachian State University.
The March 19, 20, and 21 Banff Film Festival screenings have been cancelled. At the present time, efforts are underway to re-schedule the screenings for the fall of 2020. Updates will be provided here as they become available. Please retain your original tickets, in the event that the screenings can be rescheduled, as they will be valid for use at that time. The Schaefer Center Box Office is currently closed due to the stay-at-home orders from the State of N.C. and from the guidance of Appalachian State University. Your original tickets for the cancelled March 19, 20, and 21 2020 screening are necessary for any future rescheduled dates in the fall, or for refunds. Additionally, your original tickets for the cancelled March 2020 screenings may be used to exchange for the March 2021 Banff Film Festival screenings, before tickets go on sale for that event. For more information, updates will be provided here as they become available.
The Banff Centre has created an awesome in-home film experience for people to enjoy in the confort of their homes. Go to the following website to enjoy. https://www.banffcentre.ca/film-fest-at-home We look forward to the day when we can once again enjoy the films together.
