MORE PEOPLE OUTDOORS MORE OFTEN
We’re a small group of filmmakers, adventurers, and outdoor professionals who have come together with a vision to share our passion for the great outdoors. After years of exploring the world, documenting our adventures, and attending film festivals around the globe, we were inspired to create something meaningful in our own backyard - Australia.
The Port Fairy Adventure Film Festival is a not-for-profit event, run entirely by volunteers.
Our Mission Statement
To get more people outdoors more often.
By sharing meaningful stories, we aim to inspire and motivate people to better engage with their local communities and outdoor environments.
To become Australia’s leading adventure film festival and in the process create a community of passionate outdoor lovers, filmmakers, and like-minded individuals that can come together to drive positive change in our world.
