Ignite your passion for adventure, action, and travel! With stops planned in about 400 communities and 35 countries across the globe, this year’s tour features a collection of the most inspiring action, environmental, and adventure films from the festival.

Travelling to exotic landscapes and remote cultures, and bringing audiences up close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2012/2013 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world. Films in this year’s world tour are sure to captivate and amaze the explorer within you.

From approximately 350 films entered into the annual festival, award-winning films and audience favourites are among the films chosen to travel the globe.
