Activism has always been at the core of Adventure Film Festival.
Over the last fourteen years we’ve aligned with and supported organizations that share our goal to bring the spirit of adventure to more people.
This journey has reached over 100,000 adventures worldwide.
In 2018 Adventure Film Festival has proudly partnered with three organizations that we believe support our goals, vision and values.
We’ve proudly donated a total of $20,000 Street Fair space and publicity to the following organizations:
‘Where black people and nature meet’
Outdoor Afro has become the nation’s leading, cutting edge network that celebrates and inspires African American connections and leadership in nature. Learn more.
‘1 in 5 climbing areas in the US is threatened by an access issue’
The Access Fund is the national advocacy organization that keeps U.S. climbing areas open and conserves the climbing environment. Learn more.
@trucallenmedia Takeover Day 4 // Index is one of the more revered (feared?) climbing areas we're fortunate to have in Washington. Despite its long history dating back to the early 70's, proximity to Seattle, and fabled sandbag grading, it's only become more popular with the recent release of a new guidebook. • In 1986, the late Todd Skinner established what would become the hardest crack climb in the country at the time, and named it City Park. At 5.13d, the climb would only see 5 ascents over the decades, and most recently, the first female free ascent by Brittany Goris (@gorisb). • Brittany is one of the most committed climbers I've known. Brittany exudes a passion for the sport like no one else I know. With her recent send of one of the country's hardest, her next plan is to spend some time giving back by joining the Washington Climbing Conservation Initiative (WCCI). Headed by Access Fund, the Access Fund Conservation Team, Washington Climbers Coalition (WCC), American Alpine Club, and several local businesses, the WCCI takes on a massive conservation effort to all the larger and impacted crags around the state.

Protect Our Winters is a passionate crew of diehards, professional athletes and industry brands mobilizing the outdoor sports community to lead the charge towards positive climate action. They focus on educational initiatives, political advocacy and community-based activism. Learn more.
Ever finish a big ole trail run and think, ‘Hey, it’d be great if this place wasn’t destroyed by climate change?’ Yeah, we feel that. That’s why we’re proud to announce POW Trail, a unique branch of the POW Alliance, that focuses on unifying and amplifying the trail running community’s voice on all things climate. We're turning all outdoor people into climate advocates. Check out our latest blog (link in bio) to get the deets. 📸 @graysonschaffer
Thank you to these incredible organizations for sharing their powerful community activism with the Adventure Film Festival family in our fourteenth year.
