The Women's Adventure Film Tour features some of the world's most inspiring women in adventure. This festival is a celebration of the fantastic women around us who are doing extraordinary things.
In a global first it was launched to a sell-out crowd in Sydney in May 2017 before touring to packed theatres around Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore. We are pleased to be now bringing the Women's Adventure Film Tour back for a 8th season in 2024 and are looking for films to include as we expand the Women's Adventure Film Tour to new locations.
Partnering with Jean Hailes for Women's Health in Australia, this is an extraordinary chance to have your films included in an event that is advocating for diversity and inclusion in the outdoor industry.
Each night of the Women's Adventure Film Tour includes up to 2 hours of short films that can range from 2 minutes in length up to 30-40 mins. Ideal submission length is around 10 mins.
