Saturday October 6th - 6pm-10pm
The Film Festival will take place at the Studley Theatre at SUNY New Paltz. Featured films are this year's No Man's Land Film Festival collection with shorts that are "un-defining what it means to be a woman in Adventure, Sport & Film" and the full-length film "DirtbagMovie: The Legend of Fred Beckey," the American "dirtbag" mountaineer whose name is legend around climbing campfires. This rebel climber's pioneering ascents and lifestyle form an iconic legacy that continues to inspire generations.
Prior to the screening, the Gunks Grunt Pull-up Contest, sponsored by Furnace Industries, will be held to test the mettle of attendees with prizes to top male and female winners. Join everyone for an After-Party at Bacchus Restaurant.
