Shextreme - Alliance.png

From working out how to finance your film to getting your film’s press release published in top adventure magazines, trying to figure out everything on your own can be exhilarating but also exhausting,

overwhelming and at times lonely flying solo re-inventing the wheel each time second-guessing your next move.


It’s time-consuming trawling through what limited information there is out there for those wanting to make an adventure film and career in this field. Often, filmmakers will only be interviewed after the film has been made so you don’t gain truly helpful behind-the-scenes knowledge.


The few adventure film workshops out there are all geographically-specific, which is hard if you can’t take the time off work and book travel and accommodation half way across the world.


The Alliance is born from our community needs at Shextreme Film Festival: the world’s first film festival. There is no shortage of amazing female adventurer stories. However, there is a lack of filmmakers sharing these active women’s stories on screen. Rather than complain about it, Shextreme proactively sought to positively address this gender inequality by training up the next generation of adventure female filmmakers at Shextreme Film School since 2016. We have great successes from attendees such as environmental activist and adventurer Cal Major. She applied her useful learning at Shextreme Film School to go on and make award-winning S.U.P. adventure film Skye’s The Limit, which has also been featured in national press such as Huffington Post.
