Welcome to the 2019 Banff Centre Mountain Film & Book Festival! . The first of #nineepicdays has already set the bar for the rest of the fest. We've had inspiring film screenings, fun climbing sessions, & our Opening Night, 'Climbing Through Barriers' was one for the books! . Congrats to Summit of Excellence Award Winner David Smart 🏆 and a big thanks to everyone who helped create an awesome start to the festival. 📷: @jellybeanpanic (1) @the_witt (3-6)
