The Bansko Mountain Film Fest 2017 comes to town for the 22nd to the 26th November 2017. I love mountains from many memorable moments flying above them on my paraglider, riding on my mountain bike and of course skiing on then in the ski season. The number of films to watch is huge.

Here’s the link to the full programme over the six days:

The films are being shown both in the main Town Hall and Visitor Information Centre.

Almost every aspect of mountain pursuits are here. From climbing to BASE jumping to kayaking to Polar bears. I can’t recommend the Bansko Film Fest enough. It’s all for free too and BanskoBlog is around to be a media partner once again this year.

Their web site says…” Our goal is showing the great variety of mountains all over the world to the cinema goers. We believe that although they take up only a minute part of our planet’s surface, there is hardly any aspect of our lives left untouched by them…”


If you’re planning on visiting Bulgaria then I believe the mountains are essential. The Rhodopi are my favourite alongside other Pirin her win Bansko. But the Rila and the Balkan Start Planina range are all very special. There is a wilderness an untouched quality that can be hard to find in more popular destinations. Even Vitosha outside Sofia has a special feel to it — not least an escape from the most polluted European capital city.

Thanks for reading and be sure to subscribe for snow and weather updates, restaurant news and all that’s cool this coming winter ski season in Bansko.
