Women's Adventure Film Tour 2024
Saturday, March 9th, 2024, 7:00-8:30 pm
Recommended for ages 11+

In celebration of International Women's Day 2024, join us at the Cradle for the 2024 Women's Adventure Film Tour. Experience 8 new short films highlighting inspiring journeys.

The Women’s Adventure Film Tour is a celebration of the inspiring women around us who are doing extraordinary things in the name of adventure. Every year, the selection of unique films is carefully chosen to show awesome women achieving their personally adventurous goals. Being adventurous doesn't always have to mean being the fastest, going the highest, or doing the most extreme things. Adventure for most of us is stepping outside our comfort zone and climbing our own personal Everest. The films showcase real stories about women from a variety of cultures and sports around the world.

Approximate runtime: 90 minutes.

$15 advance tickets, $20 at the door! (Museum members $10)
