Skiing, Kayaking, Climbing, Mt.Biking, and beyond. The Adventure Film Festivals
World Tour mobilizes this years finest award winning films, bringing them to life on the
big screen in venues around the world. Audiences will travel through the lens into the
minds and locations of the worlds foremost adventurers, stirring contemplative and
emotionally charged journeys within ourselves. These films invite us all to spread the
creativity, enthusiasm, and activism inherent in Adventure.
Our typical tour show lasts 2-3 hours and features 3-7 films of varying lengths, each one
focusing on different elements of adventure. The films are pre selected by the festivals
jury to provide the highest caliber programming with consideration to the varying
demographics and interests of each specific audience. Custom presentations are also
available that might include special guest speakers and performances, outdoor movie
nights, multi day events or private showings.
Based in Boulder Colorado, the Boulder Adventure Film Festival is rooted in water, rock,
fire, music, ice, humor, and activism. Every Spring our jury selects three full nights of film
from hundreds of submissions worldwide. In 2008 this very competitive selection
process delivered forty new films. Almost five thousand viewers in downtown Boulder
watched surfing in Liberia, climbing in the Himalayas, skiing in Norway and kayaking in
Papua New Guenea to mention a few. Many filmmakers attended, and awards were
presented for ten categories ranging from 'Best Adventure Film' to the 'Activism Through
Adventure Award'. Some laughed, some cried, some cheered and everyone went home
knowing exactly what is possible with todays adventure filmmaking at its finest.
This international forum for the best and most inspiring independent films of the year
cover the range of human adventure from heart-stopping athleticism, serious exploration,
environmental heroism and gripping tales from the edges of the believable. Adventurers
and filmmakers created this festival because we believe in the power of the story,
especially the narrative of adventure and awakening to change and challenge the world
we live in.
Adventure Film is committed to promoting a healthy environment, and mobilizing people
through awareness of the world around us. Please join us as part of the 2009 World Tour.
