Redefine Feminine

No Man's Land is a tight-knit crew of ladies and lady-lovers, who are in constant pursuit of the radical. 


In the Beginning

No Man's Land Film Festival was birthed at sea. I first hatched up this idea as a means to justify an end. I was bored and uninspired by adventure films that only featured boys. I also wanted to see and connect with women who enjoyed and navigated the world in a similar style as myself. 

The last few years have been filled with success and uncertainty, but we have yet to waver. Creating and supporting an environment like No Man's Land has always been a life long dream of mine and I am beyond excited to share that vision with all of you. 

Who We Are

No Man's Land Film Festival is an all-female adventure film festival based out of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. No Man's Land Film Festival is a collaboration and celebration of men and women who are deeply engaged in enhancing 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. Along with cultivating a deep interest in exploring the vastness of our planet from a female point of view, 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. 

Who Are We?

My name is Aisha, I was raised in Carbondale, CO. I am an avid skier, climber, sailor, runner, and overall outdoor enthusiast. I can most easily be found lost in the mountains, geeking out over running books in good coffee shops, or in your driveway, blasting pop radio from my husband and my sweet van.

I have spent a huge amount of time and effort assembling the No Man's Land team. Between our Program Director, Eco-Intern and Ambassadors, I feel like NML has attracted some of the brightest and most badass individuals on the planet. 

Thank you for checking us out!

It’s incredibly important for me, as a creative, to see other women making their own adventures and pushing their boundaries—whether that’s putting up a first ascent on Baffin Island or shooting their first short film. Seeing female characters on the big screen at No Man’s Land Film Festival motivates me—it reminds me that Yes, I Can. And the more of us out there believing, Yes I Can, the more awesome women’s stories will be told, and the more amazing adventure we’ll see.
