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. This event is bigger and bolder than our abbreviated screenings on the road. This is where we gather the hearts, bodies and minds that make No Man's Land, No Man's Land.
At our Flagship Festival, we have a lot that we want to do. Which is precisely why we are always mixing up the events associated with our event. Maybe it's fomo, maybe its creative genius - who's to say? We host activist workshops, panel discussions on being a female athlete, presentations on the history of feminism and these are only to name a few. We bring in guests who are experts in their fields, whether that be skiing huge lines in British Columbia or scholars in feminism and women's studies. We choose guest speakers who live the NMLFF mission and are committed to bringing it to action. During the day we have climbing, biking, running, packrafting and yoga outings. We are always looking to engage our audience in ways that they wouldn't usually experience.
At our Flagship Festival, we have the time to showcase our entire catalogue of films that audiences love and are instrumental in un-defining feminine in adventure and sport. Our film programs range from rare and never before seen shorts by female filmmakers that will make your palms sweat, to feature length films that speak to cultural differences around the globe.
Still not sure you want to attend our Flagship Festival? So many women's primary complaint within the outdoor industry, getting into a new sport, pushing their comfort zone, etc is that they don't have a buddy or they don't see any other women doing it. If this is you, definitely join us. We love making new connections with women-identified characters that share our same interests. If this isn't you - join us anyway and show us your ways!
