About the grant

As a company that encourages safe and responsible exploration of the outdoors, Summit Hut feels a deep connection to local organizations that help preserve, educate about and enhance our community’s experience in our environment and wild places. Each year, Summit Hut hosts the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival, a collection of inspirational mountain culture films with an environmental message, with a portion of the proceeds donated back to the community in the form of Banff Grants.
