HOST A SHOW

Adventure Film mobilizes the finest award winning films, bringing them to life on the
big screen in venues around the world. As the host organization you choose a program that reflects the interests of your community from a selection of films on adventure, exploration, culture, and environment.

Review the host guidelines below to learn about how you can apply, what you are responsible for, and what we provide to our hosts. It’s important to note…The festival staff does not always travel to your venue. We have created a streamlined program that empowers our hosts to connect with their community and establish their own local team. Therefore, we reduce our carbon footprint and your event is not dependent upon our travel schedule.

FAQ

DO YOU COME HOST THE SHOW FOR US?
The Adventure Film World Tour hosts are responsible for putting on the show – that includes finding a venue, promoting the show, and selling tickets. We’ll guide you the entire way!

DOES IT COST MONEY TO HOST A SHOW?
We charge our hosts a very reasonable licensing fee. The amount varies and is dependent on your venue size, location, and ticket price.

CAN I FIND LOCAL SPONSORS?
Yes! We encourage you to connect with your community and raise money through local sponsors. Adventure and outdoor oriented businesses and organizations are always excited to be a part of the action! They can easily help you cover your licensing fee and help you promote the show. (Please note : Sponsors who directly compete with Adventure Film’s national sponsors are not allowed – see the sponsors page for a list of our partners).

CAN I USE THE EVENT AS A FUNDRAISER?
The Adventure Film Festival is a PERFECT event for raising funds and awareness for your organization. The majority of our shows function as very successful fundraising events.

DO YOU PROVIDE MARKETING MATERIALS TO HELP US PROMOTE THE SHOW?
Yes! We provide you with professional custom designed promotional materials such as posters, flyers, tickets, VIP Passes, and wristbands that you can use to spread the word in your community. You can easily order any of these high quality materials (at a highly discounted rate) and they are delivered straight to your doorstep!

DO YOUR HOSTS USUALLY MAKE A PROFIT?
Yes! The only thing you need to pay is the licensing fee. Once that is covered you have the freedom to structure things how you’d like in order to meet your goals. You can set the ticket price, negotiate the venue rental, use a raffle or silent auction to raise money, throw a cool party and sell beer, wine, and food that is donated to you. For some organizations this is their largest and most successful fundraiser of the year! The possibilities are endless!
