The BMC's initiative to showcase female athletes and directors in the spotlight is an effort we can all appreciate.
The BMC has teamed up with Sport is Beautiful, the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF), WomenClimb, Mountain Warehouse, and a load of other partners to bring the Women in Mountain Adventure Film Competition. After discovering at the ShAFF that only an average of 20% of entries were created by women, or featured a female protagonist, the Women in Mountain Adventure Film Competition was created to address this issue.
