About the Film
The Women’s Adventure Film Tour is an annual program, enjoyed by film lovers and adventurers from around the world. Every year, our selection of unique films are carefully chosen to show awesome women achieving their personally adventurous goals. Being adventurous doesn’t always have to mean being the fastest, going the highest or doing the most extreme things. Adventure for most of us is stepping outside our comfort zone and climbing our own personal Everest. The films showcase real stories about women from a variety of cultures and sports around the world.
The festival is designed to be enjoyed by women, children and men of all ages.
The films will be available to watch starting on March 8 (International Women’s Day 2021) until March 25, 2021. Once you start watching, you will have 72-hours to finish the film collection.
