WISE Screens 2022 No Man’s Land Film Festival (“NMLFF”)
Women In Sports Empowered Hong Kong (WISE) is screening the 2022 No Man’s Land Film Festival, an all-women outdoor adventure and conservation film festival. The films shown will showcase the intensity, passion, grit, genius and drive that all women carry.
By screening NMLFF, we hope to not just equalize, but to also normalize what it means to live as a woman and connect athletes, artists and storytellers who share a vision of equality, diversity and inclusion in sport, film and adventure. We are additionally inviting in speakers to share their experiences and passion for outdoor adventure.
About No Man’s Land Film Festival
As the premier all-women adventure film festival, NMLFF has celebrated the full scope of female athletes and adventurers by un-defining what it means to be a woman in adventure, sport and film since 2015. Based out of Denver, Colorado, NMLFF meets a need and desire to highlight and connect women in pursuit of the radical. No Man’s Land is deeply engaged in enhancing the feminine presence in the outdoor adventure arena.
NMLFF revised its mission statement in 2020 to create safe and inclusive platforms that further champion women, transgender, and gender-fluid communities with grit, hustle, determination, and boundless passion, investing them with the respect, support, and media recognition they deserve.
