Paddy Pallin Presents The Women’s Adventure Film Tour Paddy August 19, 2019 All A night full of inspiring, epic and adrenaline-filled outdoor adventure films sounds like a great time to us! This year’s Women’s Adventure Film Tour features some seriously adventurous and talented women who are pushing boundaries, reaching new heights, and connecting with a wide spectrum of cultures and communities. From mountain biking to climbing mountains and even diving off cliffs, this year’s tour has something for every adventure lover and we’re confident it won’t disappoint (Hint: we’ve hosted sneak peak events at Paddy Pallin stores across Australia! So we can vouch for the line up). Paddy Pallin is proud to support the Women’s Adventure Film Tour, as it inspires many and promotes a love for the outdoors and the adventure that goes with stepping outside into the wilderness to everyone – no matter where you are from, how you identify or how old you are. These passionate and powerful women will inspire you as they share their journeys, achievements and awesome abilities while conquering some pretty epic terrain.

Tickets If you are like us and can’t wait to see the tour, we’ve got a some teasers for you on this year’s films in the Women’s Adventure Film Tour – hopefully these will keep you adventure seekers at bay until you can round up your favourite adventure buddies for a screening near you. When I Look Back Four female mountain bikers rip their way through the MTB Capital of the USA: Moab, Utah. But When I Look Back is not your typical adrenaline-fueled adventure film. Both lighthearted and contemplative, it’s a glimpse into a tight-knit group of friends doing what they love and picking each other up when they fall down. Looking back on their lives, this is what they will remember. Grand Journey Athlete: Kira Brazinski (@yogikira) Kira Brazinski was born with a rare defect. Ever since she could walk from the age of 1, she has used a prosthetic leg. And she has dreamt of summiting Grand Teton, the tallest peak in Grand Teton National Park at 4,199 metres. Her journey to do just that is documented beautifully by Après Visuals and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Grand Journey. You can check out the trailer here: A Grand Journey | Trailer from Après Visuals on Vimeo. Life of Pie The balance between marriage, mountain biking, living up to the standards of a small town while serving up irresistible pizza is a difficult one to strike. This collaboration between Felt Soul Media and Patagonia showcases the beauty of the single track-laced area outside of Fruita, Colorado, and how two women found love for each other, their surrounding public lands and the members of the small town they have adopted as their home. Warning: ADULT LANGUAGE! Couples Two well-known women in the action sports world, Janina Kuzma and Julia Mancuso, bring their spouses along on a free ride trip in the wild mountains of British Columbia, Canada. For the first time ever. As pro athletes, Janina and Julia are constantly faced with the risks and challenges of backcountry skiing. But did they ever think about how their spouses would handle them? Pacific Lines Athlete: Angie Scarth-Johnson (@angiescarthjohnson) The youngest member on The North Face Australian and New Zealand Athlete Team, Angie Scarth-Johnson is a household name in the rock climbing world. At 9-years old, Angie became the youngest person ever to send a grade 31. At 10-years old, she then climbed a grade 32/33. She is now 15-years old and in her debut film, Pacific Lines, Angie sets out to explore her past, and the possibilities of route development in Tonga alongside bolting-mentor and team mate Lee Cossey.

She then went on to win two more World Series. So how does a high diver continue to push herself after all these accolades? In ‘Rainbow Dive’, Rhiannan and her childhood friend, Emily, pack up their van and head deep into the Northern Territory in search of adventure, culture, community and of course, surreal diving experiences. The Journey to All 7 Continents Athlete: Jacqui Bell (@jacquiabell) Jacqui Bell is on a mission to become the youngest person in the world to run a multi-stage marathon on all 7 continents. She started in 2018 with Racing the Planets Four Deserts, running 250 kilometres across the Namibia Desert. She’s also finished a 323-kilometre race in New Zealand, completely self-supported and as the youngest female competitor. And as of RIGHT NOW, she only has 2 to go. The Journey to All 7 Continents is a Women’s Adventure Film Tour-sponsored film and a celebration of Jacqui’s efforts and accomplishments. Now what are you waiting for? Get your tickets now!
