Boulder Environmental, Nature, Outdoors Film Festival: Screening of Women’s Adventure Tour. 3 p.m. Saturday, April 30, Dairy Arts Center, 2590 Walnut St., Boulder. Tickets: $15, boulderenoff.org

The Women’s Adventure Film Tour line-up includes seven diverse short films in a two-hour program, featuring women of all ages and abilities: There’s Australian Olympic champion Torah Bright, ultra trail-running champion Lucy Bartholomew and more, such as women in climbing, distance swimming and mountain biking. Every year, the selection of unique films is carefully chosen to show women achieving their adventure goals. However, 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 just stepping outside our comfort zones and climbing our own personal Mount Everest. Each year, Boulder ENOFF strives to showcase unique stories from around the world, with a keen eye toward expanding global awareness of the further need for diversity, equity and inclusion.
