“Nine days you won’t want to miss.”
That’s what the team at the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival say, and the team at Cushe agreed, so we’re sponsoring. How can we pass up an amazingly diverse selection of the best in mountain film, books, and astonishing guest speakers? This is so much of what surrounds what we’re all about – Cushe Time. Plus, we have a secret plan to steal a year’s supply of Kicking Horse Coffee while we’re on site… but let’s keep that between us.
If you work at Kicking Horse Coffee, please ignore that last part. Moving on.
From October 26 to November 3, we’ll be hanging out with our partners in crime at Cushe Canada in Banff, Alberta, taking in the festival and spreading the joy of a good slice of the Cushe Life. Can. Not. Wait.
BMFF (we’re tired of typing the whole thing out) receives about 300 film submissions each year, and a committee selects the top 60 or so for the final cut of the festival. These films come in from all over the world, and cover just about every aspect of mountain and action sports culture.
Can’t make it to Banff for this? Bummer, but not the end of the world. BMFF goes on tour – hitting somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 cities in 20 countries. They take their favorite 25 films with them, and program screenings that really fit in with each city they visit. Super effing cool.
That’s the long and the short of it. We’re looking forward to hanging with our Canadian Cushe friends, and making some new ones in Alberta, and on tour.

Off to plan the rest of our coffee heist…
