We’re creating resources to help people find women in adventure films, documentaries, short videos - anything moving image. If you’d like to help, please add your favourite adventure films and YouTube channels to the list - and why you like them. Any sort of self-powered adventure: running, skiing, mountaineering, SUP, slacklining, kayaking, expeditions, microadventures…
Bonus question: what do you think makes a good adventure film?
As ever, self promotion very much encouraged - tell us about your awesome work!
Our website https://www.nowonearth.com/ showcases lots of short adventure films, we have some awesome films featuring women in adventure, all in one place! They highlight different issues such as the environment and mental health. Do check it out, and thanks for the recommendations everyone :)
I really like Athena Mellor's youtube channel with her beautiful videos of her exploring, hiking and camping. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWlJny1Wq4Ot8HenuQ81yRg
I have my own rather amateurish YouTube channel showing some of the walks I've done at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbYpSzY3Xp9pbxjecv57MSQ but I really like Abbie Barnes's channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/songthrushproduction As well as documenting walks and long distance trails, Abbie also opens up about her struggles with mental health and how it can have an effect on getting outdoors
I have been glued to a series of YouTube clips covering the Bibbulmun Track in Western Australia. I am planning to walk that one next year. The photography/imagery and backing music are highly professional and beautiful. Sometimes the narration/commentary gets a little self-indulgent, but the videography captures the stunning beauty of the path. This series is delivered by Great Walks of the World. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwT6XQJ9N8A
