With stops planned in about 390 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.
Traveling to exotic landscapes and remote cultures, and bringing audiences up-close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports, the 2011/2012 World Tour is an exhilarating and provocative exploration of the mountain world.
From approximately 300 films entered into the annual festival, award-winning films and audience favorites are among the films chosen to travel the globe.
The featured films are currently being reviewed by festival hosts and will be announced shortly.
