Women in Adventure announces collaboration with Brit Rock Film Tour Award

Posted by Emma Travers on 08/01/2022

Thinking of entering the BMC Women in Adventure film competition this year? Here's the chance to work with professional director Alastair Lee and have your film be part of the 2022 Brit Rock Film Tour.

With the recent announcement of the 2022 film competition submission date being extended until November, this has opened up the opportunity to begin this collaboration with the Brit Rock Film Tour. Each year, the tour brings a stunning lineup of films representing the best of UK climbing and adventure stories to the silver screens around the country. 

All entries wanting to be considered for the Brit Rock Film Tour opportunity must be submitted by August 1st 2022. Whilst the main deadline for all other entries remains November 2022. This is not only a great opportunity for budding and professional filmmakers alike to work with the veteran director but also an opportunity to take your work to a wider audience and be part of the UK's biggest adventure film tour.

The competition, supported by Montane, is now in it's eighth year and going from strength to strength. All previous entries, that's over 150+ short films, can be viewed over on the BMC TV YouTube channel.

The award-winning director of Climbing Blind, Alastair Lee, commented:

'We're very excited at this opportunity to bring the Women in Adventure program to the Brit Rock Film Tour. I'll be looking for original ideas and strong characters. Remember the story is paramount, the filmmaker's relationship with the subject is critical and emotional content trumps all the pretty pictures in the world. Use drones, use go pro's, use 4k slow-motion or film it all on your phone, have an amazing soundtrack or no sound at all; they are all just tools, words in the filmmaker's language, not ends in themselves. Good luck!'

New awards for 2022

The award joins another new addition for the year, the Climate Action Award. This award will be presented to the team who produces a film specifically capturing the effects of climate change today either here in the UK or abroad. This might be a film that documents issues as wide ranging as a changing landscape, a long journey using public transport or an adventurer's perspective of tackling their own carbon footprint.
