Get stoked because No Man’s Land Film Festival is coming to Providence for the first time at the historic Avon Cinema. We will be celebrating women athletes and adventurers for an evening of short films that will be sure to motivate everyone in attendance. Don’t worry fellas, you’re also invited to come watch. Tickets are $10 with all proceeds benefiting The Denali Foundation. Ticket link is at the bottom of the page.
The mission of The Denali Foundation – Getting Kids Outdoors is to develop, support and fund community outreach programs that promote youth and family engagement in the outdoors and to protect access to local green spaces. The Denali Foundation believes that every child should have access, opportunities and encouragement to experience the outdoors and connect with nature for their physical, emotional and educational well-being.
No Man’s Land Film Festival is an all-woman adventure film festival based out of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado that meets a need and desire to highlight and connect individuals who identify as women in pursuit of the radical. We are a collaboration and celebration of humans 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 un-define feminine in adventure and sport through film.
Prior to the film join us in our Providence store for a Women Outdoors Panel discussion from 5:30 – 6:30 PM. The panel will include a representative from No Man’s Land Film Festival along with locals Tiffany Rhodes and Kristin Re. The panel discussion is FREE and will take place in our Providence store right before the film. Once the discussion is over anyone with a ticket to the show can head over to the Avon.
