No Man's Land Film Festival
The Women of No Man's Land

Un-DEFINING FEMININE IN ADVENTURE AND SPORT THROUGH FILM.

No Man's Land Film Festival is an all-woman adventure film festival based out of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado that meets a need and desire to highlight and connect individuals who identify as women in pursuit of the radical. We are a collaboration and celebration of humans 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.

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.  At No Man's Land, we aim to un-define feminine in adventure and sport through film.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROMISE + COMMUNITY & LOCAL ALLIANCE

At No Man’s Land, film-goers are transformed into a congregation of committed activists, dedicated to "getting the girls out" in a responsible, inspired and informed manner.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROMISE

Our love of adventure partnered with our love for wild and beautiful places requires us to act as an advocate for the environment. The reward that we find in pursuing our passions is driven by the health of our environmentAt all of our events, we aim to create little to no waste. We do this by using only compostable and recyclable materials, encouraging the audience to bring their own cups for refreshments and find human-powered transport to and from our events. 

COMMUNITY AND LOCAL ALLIANCE

We all belong to a wide range of diverse communities. At No Man’s Land, we recognized that these collectives are our greatest allies and paramount in creating meaningful change. All of our events include facilitated round-table discussions called “Ladies' Nights” held before the film program. These events create a space for local women to connect on issues and activities that they feel strongly about. We also ask that all hosts reach out to their local companies and community members for event support before seeking corporate sponsorship.

Sea-born and mountain-bred, Aisha has been blessed with a life of sand-filled eyes, bruised knees, frost-bitten toes, perpetual bathing suit tan lines, and nails too short to paint. She is based out of Carbondale, Colorado.  Her days are full of long runs and steep descents, dancing atop mountain summits with shiny jewelry and incorrect plant identification, followed by trumpet jam sessions, Ayurvedic cooking, and bunk beds.
