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.
6 categories celebrating the power adventure films that matter:
Environmental Spotlight Award
Social Spotlight Award
Adventure Uncovered Award
Filmmakers obtain full rights to their intellectual property and submit their work to contests for review and screening purposes only.
Judges will privately score each film submission in FilmFreeway during the month of December 2020.
All our judges will be looking for films with an adventurous, outdoor narrative combined with a social or environmental message. Ie. underpinned by purpose. If your film is a typical, old adventure narrative with no social or environmental message it's highly unlikely to be scored favourably by the judges, and therefore this is not the right festival for you.
The judges will also score films favourably based on diversity, budget and production circumstances, as well as the film's commitment to motivation, inspiration and action. We explicitly encourage submissions from all backgrounds and contexts.
All film submissions must be less than 45 minutes in duration.
*All of the above will be given an appropriate weighting.
