The Women’s Adventure Film Tour features a set of 7-9 short films including the premiere of Katie Walsh’s film, Surfing to Cope about American pro surfer Brianna Cope. You’ll also experience climbing, skiing, mountaineering, snowboarding and travel films from all over the world.
Being adventurous doesn’t always have to mean being the fastest, going the highest or doing the most extreme things. Adventure for the most is stepping outside comfort zones and climbing personal Everests. The Women’s Adventure Film Tour selections have been carefully chosen to show women achieving their adventurous goals and showcase real stories about women from a variety of cultures and sports around the world.
Jennifer Pharr Davis will be on-site for a meet-and-greet during the Women’s Adventure Film Tour screening. Jennifer is a hiker, author, speaker, and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year who has covered over 14,000 miles of long distance trails on six different continents. In 2011, Jennifer covered the 2,185-mile Appalachian Trail in forty-six days, eleven hours, and twenty minutes, maintaining a remarkable average of forty-seven miles per day. By doing this, she claimed the overall (male or female) fastest known time on the “A.T.” and became the first woman to set the mark.
While not condoned by the USNWC, guests should be advised that these films may feature strong language and adult themes which may not be appropriate for younger children.
