Joanna Croston

Joanna is Programme Director at the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival

We are honoured to have Joanna Croston travelling over from Canada, speaking at the Waymaking Book launch and taking part in the Alpine Club panel discussion. Joanna grew up and went to university in Eastern Canada but it wasn’t until she moved to the Canadian Rockies permanently in 1998 that she really got schooled. In 2007, after a few years working as a gearhead in some local climbing shops, she finally found a dream job that merged mountain culture with her love of outdoor pursuits when she began working for the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival. Joanna has been the Programming Director of the Festival since 2014, she reads more than 70 mountain literature books and watches 350 mountain films annually. In addition to being a voracious reader and film enthusiast, she is an avid backcountry skier and has skied throughout North America, The Alps, Kashmir and the Indian Himalaya. As a climber she has summited many of the classic 11,000 ft. peaks in her own backyard of the Rockies. Her writing has appeared in Highline Magazine, The Canadian Alpine Journal and Alpinist. She also serves on the Mountain Culture Committee of the Alpine Club of Canada and is a representative for the International Alliance for Mountain Film.
