ANNUAL FLAGSHIP FESTIVAL
SEPTEMBER 13-16, 2018
[ Carbondale, Colorado ]
Every fall, in our hometown of Carbondale, CO, No Man’s Land holds our multi-day Flagship Festival where we put our mission into action. Carbondale is where we were born and bred and it only seems fitting to kick off each tour season with the original No Man's Land family. Each year you can find us and taking over downtown Carbondale from music venues and town parks, to art galleries and historic theatres.
Are you interested in hosting No Man's Land Film Festival on tour? We are thrilled that you are keen to empower and inspire audiences to redefine femininity in adventure through film. At No Man's Land, we are a collaboration and celebration of men and women who are deeply engaged in enhancing the female presence in the adventure arena. The goal of this festival is to connect like-minded individuals who are action-oriented, wish to support a shared vision of gender equality, have a desire to experience their passions and environments through a uniquely female lens, and above all, love adventure. No Man's Land strives to create a history of motivating audiences to implement and inspire change. Our mission transcends the films presented; this festival acts as a platform for progressive thought and movement in the outdoor industry. You are a vital part of this movement.
