Women’s Adventure Film Tour is back with all new films to celebrate Women’s Health Week 2020
This film is a celebration of inspiring women around us who are doing extraordinary things in the name of adventure.
This year’s line-up features a diverse set of films showcasing women of all ages and backgrounds, including Australian Olympic hopeful Lucy Stirling, New Zealand Olympian Janina Kuzma, World Champion Paraglider Klaudia Bulgakow, and many more women from snow sports, mountaineering, high lining, swimming and mountain biking pursuits.
“During Women’s Health Week we aim to inspire and encourage women and girls around Australia with positive messages around health and wellbeing. The Women’s Adventure Film tour also embraces these messages,” says Brenda Jones, campaign manager, Women’s Health Week.
“We are delighted to present the digital premiere of the film tour and to share the stories of these amazing women. It’s the perfect way to finish the week,” says Ms Jones
Selected cinema screenings will be taking place during Women’s Health Week (which runs 7-11 September). The film will then air at 7pm AEST on the last day of Women’s Health Week, Friday 11 September 2020, and will be available digitally for a limited 72-hour watch window. Screening details are at womensadventurefilmtour.com.
Toby Ryston-Pratt CEO Adventure Entertainment says that the Women’s Adventure Film Tour is a celebration of adventurous women around us doing amazing things that can be enjoyed by women, men and children.
“Due to COVID-19 we are also releasing this year’s Women’s Adventure Film Tour digitally on ADVENTURE+ to ensure all Australian women can experience the films at the same time,” says Mr Ryston-Pratt.
