WHAT IS AN ADVENTURE FILM?
Adventure film is a genre of documentary film which celebrates and showcases the outdoors. Often, people think of adventure films as just slick highlight reels - but our festival challenges that notion.
We believe in the heart and soul of a story. We believe in films that inspire, motivate and make a difference. And we share meaningful stories which have the power to drive positive change in our world.
Simply put, we're out to change the culture of adventure films in Australia. That's why we've created Australia's first standalone international adventure film competition.
By attending our festival, you become part of it.
