Don’t take our word for it

BANFF is a very dynamic event with a level of access to buyers that is unprecedented: everyone is part of the event and is open to conversations.

Maurício Mota,
Founder and Co-President, Wise Entertainment

So fun and a really great way to connect with producers and creatives.

Emily O. Smith,
VP Scripted, Skydance Sports (fka: VP International Programming, HBO Max)

The feeling of ‘diversity’ rang loud and clear - from the panels and presentations to the delegates themselves. We met so many amazing people and there was a true feeling of inclusion.

Tonya Williams,

More viewpoints

The Banff World Media Festival respectfully acknowledges the Treaty territory in which the festival takes place and the heart of what we do, is located on the traditional lands of Treaty No.7, which is comprised of the Stoney Nakoda Nations of Wesley, Chinki and Bearspaw, and the Blackfoot Confederacy, which includes the Piikani, Kainai and Siksika Nation and, the Dene People of the Tsuut’ina Nation. Treaty No.7 is also shared with Metis people of Region III. This area was also occupied by the Ktunaxa Nation and the Maskwacis people. BANFF’s office is on the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat and the Haudenosaunee. Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to First Nations, Métis and the Inuit peoples from across Turtle Island. BANFF strives for a respectful partnership with Indigenous Peoples – past, present and future – on the path to healing and reconciliation.
