VICTOR, Idaho — Mountain Girl, a community connecting women of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, celebrates the indomitable spirit of women in the world of adventure with No Man’s Land Film Festival this Saturday Sept. 30 to Sunday Oct. 1 at High Point Cider in Victor, Idaho.

Founded in Bozeman, Montana, this is the first year that No Man’s Land Film Festival will showcase in Teton Valley.

The history of the festival has supported female owned businesses, non-profits and the female outdoor industry. This all-inclusive celebration strives to remove barriers placed upon women through adventure and exploration. Women adventure films, female-owned outdoor brands, exciting outdoor activities and educational clinics will be offered throughout the weekend.  

“This is not your average film festival,” says Tanya Daniels from Mountain Girl. “From the vendor fair featuring woman owned businesses to the raffle benefiting the Women in the Tetons to the films that spotlight everyday women in the outdoors, we are focusing on getting all women outside.”

Educational clinics and adventure events designed to empower attendees, include a group gravel bike ride, mountain biking, a group hike, a backcountry first aid clinic and First Aid For Your Furry Friends. Local female-owned outdoor brands, such as Ride Force, Alpen Outdoors, ILLA and Ollie’s Mountain Pet Supply, will be featured during the Women’s Outdoor Market from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

No Man’s Land Adventure Film Festival premiers 12 short films between 7 and 9 p.m. on Saturday at Highpoint Cider. These un-defining feminine adventure films include the woman ski film, Breathe, an outdoor sports conservation film called Well Worn Life with Dani Reyes-Acosta, Reclaim Your Water with Natasha Smith about surfing and the climbing film, Letting Go of the Grade.

Festival goers are promised to experience the Mountain Girl creed, “Through safe and inclusive platforms Mountain Girl supports women with grit, hustle, determination and boundless passion, with the respect, support and media recognition they deserve.”

The event’s raffle will fund Women in Tetons scholarship program. Please visit Mountain Girl for the entire film lineup.
