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 toured 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 Festival.
