The Shenandoah National Park Trust is proud to host the Banff Mountain Film Festival at Charlottesville’s Paramount Theater on Sunday, March 11 and Monday, March 12, 2018.  The festival boasts two nights of the world’s best mountain sports and culture short films, showing different films each night. We’ll have drawings for outdoor-themed prizes, and information and exhibits from local sponsors and partners of the Shenandoah National Park Trust.
