-Increase the number of students served

-Increase and expand number and intensity of trips to improve student experience

-Purchase new equipment like tents, cooking equipment, safety gear, and more

-Provide more training workshops such as Wilderness First Aid and CPR

-Enhance and support our revolutionary Youth Leadership Academy

About Adventure Film Festival

CLIMB. RIDE. SLIDE. FLY. FIGHT FOR YOUR ENVIRONMENT. INSPIRE. GO HIGHER THAN YOU'VE EVER DARED TO GO.

As an international community of risk takers, provocateurs, artists, dreamers, athletes, activists…every year the international Adventure Film selection committee selects the very best and most inspirational films that cover risks both mighty and absurd; tap the fringes of the unknown; and portray those experiences that bring us to the edges of our seats with our hands over our eyes or our fists in the air. Adventure Film celebrates, supports and “ties in with” those who wish to inspire and fire the creative kilns of transformation and awareness. We believe in the power of the story, the narrative of adventure and awakening. We believe we have an opportunity and responsibility to challenge and change the world we live in.
