KINeSYS Sponsors Women's Adventure Film Tour USA 2020
WOMEN'S ADVENTURE FILM TOUR
03/15/20 - Due to COVID-19, WAFT has unfortunately been postponed. Updates on the rescheduling of screenings will be advised. Thank you for your understanding.
For 25 years, KINeSYS has been supporting and protecting women, no matter how they play. This year, KINeSYS is thrilled to be connecting with even more women who enjoy the outdoors by backing the internationally acclaimed Women’s Adventure Film Tour in the USA and Canada.
“As adventure enthusiasts who champion women in the outdoors, we are excited to be a part of this inspiring film festival. We understand how important it is for women to have sun protection they can rely on, no matter the sport. We at KINeSYS can’t wait to be a part of these extraordinary women’s lives, and to continue to advocate for amazing women doing incredible things.” – Lisa Heggie, KINeSYS CEO
The tour, which is in its second season in the USA and Canada, officially launches on March 8th, International Women's Day, and will host over 75 screenings all across North America.
Originally launched in Australia by Adventure Entertainment in partnership with She Went Wild, the short film tour is tied to Women’s Health Week each year and aims to celebrate inspirational women doing remarkable things in the name of adventure.
“Being adventurous doesn't always have to mean being the fastest, going the highest or doing the most extreme things. Adventure for the 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.” – Women’s Adventure Film Tour
Refreshed regularly and featuring 5 – 8 short films over a 100-minute screening, the event’s exiting line-up for WAFT 2020 features an all-star cast of international athletes and adventurers, including two-time Appalachian Trail FKT record holder, Jennifer Pharr-Davis; Red Bull cliff diver, Rhiannan Iffland; North Face Athlete Team Captain, Hilaree Nelson; accomplished climber, Kira Brazinski and more. Selected screenings will feature emcee introductions, prize draws and Q&A sessions.
KINeSYS is no stranger to adventure sports and the great outdoors. Owned and operated by outdoors enthusiasts, KINeSYS has been a committed supporter of adventure sportsmen and women since its inception. This support includes partnering with Dawn Wall climbers, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson, during their 2019 Australian tour.
“Having previously partnered with Adventure Entertainment on the Australian Tour of two of the world’s best climbers, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson, KINeSYS is a perfect fit as a sponsor of WAFT’s 2020 USA tour.” – Henry Lystad, Director of Operations, Adventure Entertainment
