REDEFINING FEMININE IN ADVENTURE AND SPORT THROUGH FILM.
No Man's Land Film Festival is an all-female adventure film festival based out of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado that meets a need and desire to highlight and connect women in pursuit of the radical. 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. 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 redefine 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.
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 environment. At 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.

Oh, right - and the most radical, passionate, powerful, and inspiring women out there. We are super excited and hope to see you there!
NMLFF 2016 -17 Flagship Festival - Carbondale, CO
365 days around the sun and we are back! This is the place where we first found our inspiration and this community is bursting with our biggest supporters. For this reason, we will always launch from this tiny town nestled high in the Rocky Mountains in front of the amazing human beings who have been with us from the beginning. Plus, did we mention Sopris?!
NMLFF Inaugural Flagship Festival - Carbondale, CO
This event marks the first No Man's Land Flagship Festival. Imagine the sun setting behind Mount Sopris, adventure-enthusiasts young and old sipping IPA from compostable cups, dogs running in the grass, children laughing, and a middle school central space filled to the brim, lit up by a big screen featuring radical women. Inspiration was in the air.
