No Man’s Land Film Festival, Undefine Feminine
The Nation's Only Female-Focused Film Festival
No Man's Land is sharing its mission of un-defining feminine and what it means to be a woman. While the name may sound exclusive, No Man’s Land encourages all genders to attend. Beyond the No Man's Land's mission, the films are a strong curation and representation of true outdoor adventure film - and they just happen to only feature women.
Kicking off their fourth year of operations, No Man’s Land Film Festival is breaking down national and international borders with their 2018/19 tour — aimed to become an international voice for women in adventure, sport and film.
No Man's Land Film Festival (NMLFF) is the premier all-women adventure film festival based out of Carbondale, Colorado and on tour internationally. In its fourth year, No Man's Land Film Festival has reached audiences in nearly every US state and has breached international borders with events ranging from Canada to Australia. NMLFF celebrates the full scope of woman-identified athletes and adventurers, looking to undefine what it means to be a woman in adventure, sport and film. NMLFF champions women with grit, hustle, determination, and boundless passion, investing them with the respect, support, and media recognition they deserve. Through human collaboration, No Man's Land strives to implement and inspire change in the outdoor, sport and film industries, while cultivating a deep interest in exploring the vastness of the planet from a woman’s point of view. The NMLFF mission transcends the films presented, acting as a platform for powerful and progressive movement in the outdoor industry.
With their manifesto: "We are women and we are allies. We are sunsets and alpen glow, dangerous riptides and endless single track. We are coffee-fueled optimists who may dance-all-night into an alpine start and laugh too loudly at jokes that no one else understands. But we are more than that. We are the vastness to the mountains, we are the horizon to the sea. We are global and there is no end to our possibility. We are rugged and determined. We are forged from a fire of passion and grit; we are nurtured by adventure. We will not be denied. We celebrate our voices and our bodies: their strength, their power, their ability to move mountains or, at the very least, to climb them. We aren’t just women and we will stand up for our sisters whether or not society recognizes them as such. We are unique. We are individual. We are human. And we don’t draw lines, because everyone defines their own," No Man's Land champions women-identified athletes, storytellers and creatives who find inspiration and motivation through adventure, sport and film.
