Concierge.com's insider take:
The Banff Centre helps to solidify Banff's claim as the capital of Canadian mountain culture. The Banff Mountain Film Festival (usually held in early November) pioneered the mountain film genre, whether for hard-core mountaineers or armchair wannabes. It offers seminars on such diverse subjects as the "ancient roots" of skiing, the people of China's Altai Mountains, and adventure filmmaking. From May to September, the Centre hosts its own Summer Arts Festival, with more than 200 musical performances, art exhibitions, and theater shows spread out over the tourist season. Since its founding in 1933, the Centre has also served as a training ground and performance space for dance, music, opera, and other art forms.
