Women, adventure and filmmaking go hand-in-hand, even if the world doesn't often recognise it. The best surfing and skydiving movie ever made — that is, the original Point Break — was directed by a pre-Oscar-winning Kathryn Bigelow, for example. At the Women's Adventure Film Tour, she has plenty of fantastic female company.

Australasia's first film festival dedicated to inspiring ladies doing exciting and extraordinary things is once again hitting the road in New Zealand. On its national trek, attendees can expect a high-octane onslaught of documentary efforts highlighting real stories about women.

This year's tour includes nine short films — witness the grit and determination of one of the world's most successful female paragliding pilots, Australian cliff diver Rhiannan Iffland, and elite ultra runner Anna Frost.

The fest's selection also draws from a variety of cultures, touches upon a range of sports from around the world, and shows ladies either going full daredevil or stepping beyond their comfort zones — because adventure means different things to different people. A collaboration between Mountainfilm and female-fronted collective She Went Wild, it stops by Newmarket's Rialto Cinema on Thursday, 5 March in line with International Women's Day.
