Women’s Adventure Film Tour is back for its fifth season

Jean Hailes for Women’s Health is delighted to welcome back the Women’s Adventure Film Tour for its fifth season as an official part of Women’s Health Week. Australia’s original women’s adventure film tour, created by Adventure Entertainment, this short film festival is a celebration of the inspiring women around us who are doing extraordinary things in the name of adventure.
Adventure Entertainment is screening the Women’s Adventure Film Tour all around Australia from the 6-10 Sept. For those who cannot visit cinemas due to COVID impacts, this year's festival is being released early as a virtual event. The event will have all the great things you've come to expect from hosted shows, including emcee introduction, filmmaker Q&A, prize draws and bonus films. The virtual event will be streaming at 7pm from 11 – 25 September 2021. To watch the film, simply subscribe to the streaming platform ADVENTURE+ before 11 September. 

Every year, the selection of unique films is carefully chosen to show women achieving their adventure goals. However, 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 just stepping outside our comfort zones and climbing our own personal Mt Everest. The films showcase real stories about women from a variety of cultures and sports around the world.

This year’s Women’s Adventure Film Tour line-up includes 7 diverse short films across 111 minutes, and features women of all ages and abilities; there’s Australian Olympic champion Torah Bright, ultra trail-running champion Lucy Bartholomew and more, such as women in climbing, distance swimming and mountain biking. 

All ticket buyers* will have the chance to enter an awesome prize draw** from the Women’s Adventure Film Tour official partners including THERMOS and OSPREY.

The Women’s Adventure Film Tour is exempt from classification, so would obtain G/PG ratings. This means they can be enjoyed by women, children and men of all ages.

The Women's Adventure Film Tour will screen all throughout Australia. Follow their Facebook Page and Instagram for more updates. Check here for tickets and screenings (which will be continually added) or reach out on email ([email protected]) if you'd like to host you're own.

Refunds depend on the cinema policy

** All competition entrants receive the opportunity to sign up for a 30-day free trial to ADVENTURE+, where you can watch the past 3 seasons of Women’s Adventure Film Tour and a host of bonus films.
