Not only do we have an amazing lineup of adventure films at this year’s event, we will also have an array of thirst-quenching beverages crafted by these local favourites.
A community event requires community support and these Bowen-based businesses all said “yes” to adventure! We send out a big thank you to these supporters of the 2018 Bowen Island Adventure Film Festival:

Tasty snacks, refreshing drinks, new skills, fun prizes, gorgeous venue, inspiring people, entertaining talks, and exciting films made for a fantastic evening. Thank you to everyone who showed up in every way to the 2017 BIAFF. See you next year!
At this year’s event, the festival favourite was chosen by audience ballot. We had incredible participation – over 80% of the audience voted! The response reflected the diversity of the films as the votes were fairly evenly distributed, however, two presentations emerged as front runners, both Michelle Catherine Nelson’s film “Eat the World Green” and Kimberley McMullen’s “Ultra Bowen”.
And the winner by ONE vote is: Kim McMullen for “Ultra Bowen”!
Her combination talk and film had the audience in stitches as she regaled her tales of Bowen Island as her training ground for her upcoming Ultramarathon race.
Congrats, Kim! We will all be cheering you on as you continue to hit the trails for your big day.
The audience at the 2017 Bowen Island Adventure Film Festival will be voting for their favourite to win this year’s Festival Prize! Come watch the show and choose which presentation best embodies the spirit of adventure and celebrates the extraordinary nature of Bowen Island.
