Open to the widest audience, the festival is committed to presenting

the very human adventures

Far from extreme or uniquely sensational activities, competitions or sports, the films presented tell stories and inspiring journeys. Often free from motorized means, these adventures on horseback, on foot, by bike, by boat ... go to the four corners of the world (at sea, in the mountains, in the air, in the deserts of sand or ice, at bottom forests or caves ...) and can even engage next to you. The films presented offer us daring projects, solitary or collective journeys, expeditions of exploration ... But, each time, they draw us portraits of men and women who decided to try adventure and share it.

A competition of documentary films and adventure books.

During these four days, the Festival offers about twenty adventure documentaries including 16 international films in competition. The juries of the film discovering the films at the same time as the public, a time of deliberation is required before the presentation of the charts on Saturday at 17:00. That's why, on Saturday afternoons, we offer 2 out-of-competition films. On the sidelines of this competition, 5 books are selected to compete for the Golden Fleece of Adventure Book Award and at the Price of the readers of the Médiathèque Port du Canal. On the other hand, news of the adventure presents expeditions (about to leave or just returned) during the festival.
7 awards for movies:
The Golden Fleece of Adventure Film (financially endowed by the city of Dijon): the grand prize of the festival.
The Special Jury Prize: the special jury choice of the film is equivalent to the 2nd prize.
The Jean-Marc Boivin Prize: this prize rewards the authenticity of an adventure (like the adventure lived by the Dijon adventurer Jean-Marc Boivin).
The Alain Bombard Prize: this prize is awarded to the film which contains a teaching for the future (according to the wishes of the navigator Alain Bombard).
The Dijon Public Prize: the public's favorite.
