NO MAN'S LAND, THE NATION'S ONLY FEMALE-FOCUSED FILM FESTIVAL, RETURNS TO CARBONDALE

Grit. Audacity. Determination. Boundless Passion. These are the characteristics that No Man’s Land Film Festival (NMLFF) champions in its collection of films. They aren’t too different from what you’d see portrayed in traditional adventure film festivals like Telluride Mountainfilm or 5Point Film Festival. The big difference with NMLFF is that these characteristics are all embodied, fully realized, and upheld by women.

CHANGING SEASON CHANGING CLIMATE

I recently attended the No Man’s Land Film Festival, put on by Wylder Goods, where a panel of local activists shared the issues they’re fighting, what impact we can have at the local level, and ways to get involved. Although every piece of advice was inspiring and hopeful, the best was this: find a cause you believe in and can stand by, and put your energy and passion into it.


FOLLOWING WOMEN ON A MISSION, AND REVISITING A CLASSIC

Empowering women through adventure sports is the mission of the Outdoor Women’s Alliance, which partners with the No Man’s Land Film Festival, a Colorado-based touring event.

THE NO MAN’S LAND FILM FESTIVAL, STORYTELLER OF ALL-FEMALE ADVENTURES

The festival’s founder, Aisha Weinhold, notes, “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.”And from that idea the No Man’s Land Film Festival was born. With a name that invokes on the one hand adventure into the unknown and on the other a female-only mission, Aisha and her crew are committed to pushing their brand to the national stage.


CONVERSATION WITH AISHA WEINHOLD

Aisha Weinhold, founder of No Man's Land Film Festival, lives with her husband, Steve, in Aspen, Colorado, in a small duplex-like apartment, but it feels more like a tree house. You enter through the garage filled with any tool you could possibly need, then walk up the stairs to their main living space. They have bunk beds. A large window fills their space with natural light which breaks through the gold aspens that surround their home.

WOMEN SHARE THEIR OUTDOOR JOURNEYS AT CARBONDALE FILM FEST

"Seeing no women represented at this elite level made me realize either I wanted to be that person or create a platform where that existed," she said. "So many people are bitching about how women are underrepresented in media, but nobody's actually doing anything about it." Weinhold spent two years gathering content before she arranged a sold-out inaugural event.

EPISODE 1 - THE MOUNTAIN OUTPOST

Born and raised in Colorado Aisha, is the founder of the No Man's Land Film Festival. She is an avid skier, climber, sailor, runner and overall outdoor enthusiast. Aisha created the film festival as a means to justify an end. She wanted to see and connect with women who enjoyed and navigated a world similar to hers, and so began the planning. 


WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES

I started No Man’s Land Film Festival: an all-female adventure film festival in March of 2014. I had spent the previous two years collecting content. When I first announced in 2012 that I would start a festival that catered solely to females in the adventure and outdoor industry, not only was I met with resistance, but with contempt. No one could understand why women in sports needed a voice. The general consensus was that women are not as talented as men and that this film festival would result in a celebration of mediocrity and untamed emotion.

ONE STORY OF THE 2016 WOMEN'S CLIMBING FESTIVAL

This growth was salient during the No Man’s Land Film Festival which finished off the evening. While some (Georgie Abel, notably) have critiqued film festivals such as Reel Rock for minimizing the coverage of significant women achievements, this festival   highlighted women skiing off vertical cliffs, 6-year-old skater chicks, Afghani women given the opportunity to bike, and of course, lady crushers sending insane routes. I was literally surrounded by inspiring women—to my back, left, right, and on the screen in front of me.


WOMEN’S CLIMBING FESTIVAL

The No Man’s Land film festival concluded the evening with a celebration of badass women in adventure sports. A ton of awesome prizes were raffled off and over $1,100 was raised for Access Fund projects in the Bishop area.
