The BMC Women in Adventure Competition

The BMC and Kendal Mountain Festival are calling for all adventurers and filmmakers to switch their cameras on and get ready to enter the Women in Adventure Film Competition 2023.

Calling all storytellers, intrepid adventurers and visual creatives - if you have a story to tell or a cause to share, it's the time to do so! The BMC wants to see your adventures captured on film to help keep the cycle of inspiration rolling as they head into the eighth year of the competition.

Taking place at Kendal Mountain Festival this November, the BMC will be hosting the Awards Ceremony and a special Film Screening for the BMC Women In Adventure Film Competition over the Festival weekend. The winners will be announced during this session and you will have a chance to hear from them about their incredible adventures.

  • £2 to enter (+ wall entry) 
  • All abilities welcome
  • Win goodies from The North Face and affiliated brands 
  • Meet some famous faces

Thank you to The North Face, Ellis Brigham and Tenzing for presenting this competition.


Film is at the centre of the Festival, transporting us to adventures far and wide, giving us an intimate perspective on wilderness and cultures beyond our own.

Our International Film Competition presents 12 awards each year. Our Jury is led by broadcast correspondent and producer Keme Nzerem and a selection of industry experts and adventurers.Submitting to a film festival gives your film a life of its own! It is an opportunity to see your film curated within a programme; this can emphasis elements of a film beyond a singular viewing, and draw your project and protagonists into an exhilarating community at the Festival. Our audience are an enthusiastic and committed bunch, and it’s rare for a Kendal filmmaker to finish the Festival without a personal chat on one part or another of their production in one of the town's bars!
