Female adventurers are everywhere, they’re climbing mountains, they’re running across country, they’re dropping in on 40 ft waves and they’re riding down unchartered backcountry. Why then, does it often feel like the majority of action sports media out there is based around men? Shextreme thinks the answer is about more than the person in front of the lens, it’s also about the one behind it.
There is a shortage of filmmakers sharing empowering female stories on screen for all to see. The team behind Shextreme Film Festival is working on changing that through showcasing the work of female adventure filmmakers out there and providing lessons to teach the skills needed to start documenting their travels, to the ones who need it.
Returning to Bristol this October for the third consecutive year, the cinematic festival celebrates the inspiring stories of women in action sports from a whole host of creative disciplines and acts as a platform for women to come together and inspire the next generation.
