No Man’s Land Expands to Tucson
Film festival breaking down borders, aiming to become an international voice for women in adventure

– As the only adventure film festival that exclusively features female athletes, No Man’s Land Film Festival (NMLFF) is at the forefront of a movement redefining femininity in adventure and championing female athletes in outdoor media.
The primary goal of NMLFF is to connect strong, like-minded individuals who are united by their passion for gender-e

quality and an eagerness to experience their passions through a uniquely feminine lens. "Bold, vibrant women are stepping into the outdoor industry with intrepid spirit and boundless drive. We aim to champion the women of outdoor and adventure sports, investing them with the respect, recognition, and dignity they deserve," says Aisha Weinhold, NMLFF Founder and Director.
This year, local nonprofit Climbing Association of Southern Arizona is bringing Tucson’s first screening to The Loft

Cinema. Tickets are $10 each ($12 at the door) and include admission to the festival on February 15, plus presentations from local female climbers who contribute to Tucson’s community in invaluable ways.
"I'm inspired by the diversity in our climbing community," adds Eric

Sophiea, President of CASA’s Board of Directors. "And I'm acutely aware that women often get featured in films far less often than men, when you consider that nearly half of all climbers are female. When I learned about the NMLFF, I immediately knew that CASA had to bring it to Tucson."
"Having seen No Man's Land at the 2017 Women's Climbing Festival in Bishop, California, my teen climber daughter and I were unexpectedly moved in immeasurable ways," says Sarah Parent, co

-organizer of the local film festival. "We felt understood, validated, and inspired."
Tickets go on sale January 1

st and are available for purchase locally at The Loft Cinema, Rocks & Ropes, and The BLOC. For more information about the festival, please contact Kristyn Conner, CASA’s Executive Director, at (863) 206-5045 or via email at kristyn@theclimbershome.org.
