Adventure Uncovered Film Festival is an evening celebrating powerful, purpose-driven adventures that matter. It's the only adventure film festival dedicated to films with social or environmental narratives.

The Festival is a big screen celebration of the very best, purpose-driven adventures the world has on offer, focusing the spotlight on a diverse array of critical yet often neglected and unknown issues facing humanity and the environment right now.

Launching again in London, the festival this year moves to additional locations across the UK, showcasing an unprecedented and entertaining lineup of previously unseen footage and documentaries (long and short), as well as unheard talks with the filmmakers and shakers, plus pre-event filmmaking workshops.

The event aims to inspire and motivate a highly captive audience into action, providing a creative, adventurous platform for outdoor enthusiasts and filmmakers and shakers to catch up with old friends and make new connections.

7 categories celebrating the power adventure films that matter:

People's Choice
Adventure Uncovered Award
Impact Award
New Talent
Environmental Spotlight Award
Social Spotlight Award
Summer Short

Judges will be looking for films with an adventurous, outdoor narrative combined with a social and/or environmental message.

The judges will select films for category awards based on their ability to educate, inspire and motivate, as well as incorporating Adventure Uncovered's values of diversity and inclusion. We explicitly encourage submissions from all backgrounds and contexts.

All film submissions must be less than 60 minutes in duration.

*All of the above will be given appropriate weighting.

    What a wonderful festival! Rosie and James were so welcoming and it was a joy to attend their festival. The venue was great with an amazing selection of films and the whole evening ran smoothly. I met a wonderful array of people who I look forward to adventuring with in the future. Rosie even took me swimming at the women's pond on Hamstead Heath. Thanks again Adventure Uncovered.

  • One of our favourite festivals of the year, a great venue, fantastic communications and support and a very reasonal entry fee. Importantly for us the event was completely aligned with our principles so we are really looking forward to (hopefully) being involved next year.
