MountainTrue, a Western North Carolina-based environmental conservation nonprofit, is organizing three screenings throughout our region this spring – in Brevard at Oskar Blues Brewery on April 3, in Boone at Center 45 on April 13 and in Asheville at New Belgium Brewing on April 25. Organizers with MountainTrue hope that the No Man’s Land Film Festival will inspire more women to spend time in the outdoors and, in turn, take up the cause of environmental conservation and protection.
The Boone event includes a pre-screening panel discussion featuring local women adventurers who will share about their passions for outdoor pursuits and their commitment to protecting the rivers, mountains, and forests where they do their thing. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.; panel starts at 6 p.m; and the film begins at 7:15 p.m.. Films will be screened inside Center 45 and we’ll have a beer garden style event space spilling into the parking lot featuring food trucks, a beer tent, and family friendly activities. The outside space will open at 4:30 p.m., so come early to grab a drink and some grub before the program starts!
“No Man’s Land Film Festival champions women in the outdoors. Through the film festival, we want to inspire women to lace up their hiking boots, strap on a climbing harnesses or hit the trail.” explains Julie Mayfield, co-director of MountainTrue, a Western North Carolina-based environmental conservation nonprofit. “Our mountains and rivers need more champions, and those of us who spend time playing in the outdoors are more likely to fight to protect the outdoors.”
