Born and raised in Colorado Aisha, is the founder of the No Man's Land Film Festival. She is an avid skier, climber, sailor, runner and overall outdoor enthusiast. Aisha created the film festival as a means to justify an end. She wanted to see and connect with women who enjoyed and navigated a world similar to hers, and so began the planning.
At their core, the No Man's Land Film Festival is an all-female adventure film festival based out of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. It is a collaboration and celebration of men and women who are deeply engaged in enhancing female presence in the adventure arena. The goal of this festival is to connect like-minded individuals who are action-oriented, wish to support a shared vision of gender equality, have a desire to experience their passions and environments through a uniquely female lens, and above all, love adventure. Along with cultivating a deep interest in exploring the vastness of our planet from a female point of view, No Man's Land strives to create a history of motivating audiences to implement and inspire change. Their mission transcends the films presented; and acts as a platform for progressive thought and movement in the outdoor industry.

"With the environmental crisis being in it’s current state, we want to support and inspire women to get into their environments, while cultivating a deep respect and sense of responsibility for the places where we play. The reward that we find from pursuing our passions is driven strongly by the health of our environment. Our love of adventure partnered with our love for wild and beautiful places inspires us to act as an advocate for the environments we love, meanwhile facilitating the connection between place and play."
