See the stories of women, transgender, and gender-fluid adventurers on the big screen.

The No Man’s Land Film Festival is on its world tour, sharing stories of women of all backgrounds and identities in adventure sports — and you have two chances to get in on the action locally, with different films screened at each event.

This Friday, Nov. 17, head to Riveter to see a presentation from special guest and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Jennifer Pharr Davis before sitting in for the screening showcasing stories that increase representation of female-identifying, queer, + women of color adventure athletes. Snag a film ticket for $20, or lean into the spirit of adventure and opt for the $30 ticket, which includes a climbing day pass.

MountainTrue will also present the film festival on Tuesday, Nov. 28 at New Belgium inside the Brewhouse. Doors open at 6:30 for a free showing of environment-focused shorts — seating is first come, first serve. Can’t make it in person? No worries. You can register online for a virtual screening too. Since the film fest falls on Giving Tuesday, consider donating to MountainTrue to help our forests, rivers, and communities thrive.
