We're back in Brighton for the 3rd year in a row for an evening of adventure and outdoor films that highlight the grit, diversity, challenges and triumphs of adventure’s lesser-known tales - view the film trailers we'll screen below and join us at Bison Beach Bar!

Where will the films be screened?

Outdoors at the magnificent Bison Beach Bar, wrap up warm!

Event Summary

Adventure Uncovered's first in person film festival event for 18-months will take place outdoors on the beach at Bison Beach Bar (Sea Lanes), with the iconic pier as a backdrop on Weds 22nd Sep!

For the 3rd year running, the event will support The Wave Project in Brighton, and Leave No Trace Brighton, raising money through a social, pre-event outdoor Pier to Pier charity swim (guided by conservation advocates The Wild Swimming Brothers) and charity raffle during the evening, giving away amazing prizes and experiences.

The event is outdoors so you'll have to wrap up well to keep warm, but after being locked up for so long we felt we needed to run our film festivals outdoors in unique and memorable settings!

*Important Note / The small print: The event is weather dependent, for safety reasons we can only run the evening with winds <20Mph, and can only reimburse the ticket price less fundraising for our preferred charities and our operational costs. However, don't let that deter you as the long-range forecast looks promising, we will keep you updated!

In 2008 Dustin Reynolds was riding his motorcycle when he was hit by a drunk driver. As he lay on the road, still conscious and aware that he had lost an arm and a leg, he debated the awful choice before him. Call 911, live and be disabled; or die on the road. Fours years later Dustin, who had no...

Today over 40 million people live in modern day slavery. We don´t see them with chains around their necks like in the old slavery days but it is the same system.

In spring 2019 gigantic walls of snow piled up along the pass road to the Timmelsjoch, Austria. Johanna Bolanos Cabrera and Jasmijn Hanegraef grap their longboards and took the chance to downhill through this stunning scenery. Speed is what the girls are living for!
