Recap: No Man’s Land Film Screening

Happy 2018! We have big plans for this year and lots of events to look forward to, but first let’s take a quick look back at the No Man’s Land film screening at Patagonia Palo Alto in November.

In summary: it was a great evening out. We got to hang out with 150 of you, raise more than $1,300, eat some popcorn, drink some beer, and watch a series of inspiring short films featuring incredible female athletes in a range of outdoor pursuits, from Madaleine Sorkin’s quest to be the first woman to send The Honeymoon Is Over (5.13c) on Long’s Peak in Colorado to Lael Wilcox’s endurance bike touring on the Arizona Trail.

No Man’s Land is a Rocky Mountain-based film festival and touring series, with a mission to “redefine femininity” and “connect women in pursuit of the radical”. We dig that, and the screening provided an upbeat evening of laughter, amazement, and inspiration. Powered by 20+ volunteers from the BACC, Alpenglow Collective and Patagonia, plus the contagious enthusiasm of attendees, we had a fantastic time celebrating women who crush.

We were also excited to partner with the incredible folks at Alpenglow Collective, an inclusive organization of female, trans, and gender non-conforming climbers. They’re building a network to connect members with new climbing partners who have similar goals, schedules, and interests and want to get after it in the gym or at the crag.

If you missed this screening, the Cairn Project is hosting another screening at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco on January 18th!
