Our 4th edition will be a thrilling ride organised on 10th and 11th October at Kino Armata, Prishtina. We are part of the esteemed Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival, the world's oldest and most prestigious festival of its kind. Originating in Banff, Alberta, Canada, in 1976, it now travels to over 40 countries, reaching more than 600,000 people worldwide. Kosovo is the only country in the region to host this incredible festival.
Our thoughtfully curated programmes delve into a realm of adventure sports, including skiing, climbing, hiking, mountain biking, base jumping, paragliding, surfing, and more. But that is not all; we shine a spotlight on contemporary environmental and social issues because we believe in the power of storytelling to inspire change.
