In order to encourage outdoor/extreme sports filmmaking in China and discover more local adventure filmmakers/directors, Banff China started the first “China Outdoor Film Show” in 2013. The first show has waken the long sleeping adventure filmmaking industry in China and we have received over 60 film entries in the first year. 16 finalists and their filmmakers were then shared their stories across the country. The campaign received a large amount of positive feedback and media presence.
In 2014, China Outdoor Film Show was renamed China Outdoor Film Fest.
2017 the 4th China Outdoor Film Fest awarded 6 films out of entries，and the awarding ceremony & experiece sharing was held in Beijing on June 11th，2017
