Do you see your journeys through a viewfinder? If so, you can see the work of others just like you at the Nomading Film Festival, which is coming to the city to showcase films made by travelers. 

With a mission to "acknowledge the nomads who leave their comfort zones behind and capture their adventures on film," NoFF asked the travel community to “Engage. Explore. Record.”

Submissions had to be 15 minutes or shorter. The creator of the winning film will receive a trip for two in India, sponsored by Intrepid Travel. Other winners will receive assorted prizes from festival sponsors, EMS, Outdoor Bound, Manhattan Portage and more.

The film festival will take place from 4 to 9 p.m. June 18 at Hostelling International in New York, the largest hostel in North America and home to the biggest private outdoor gathering space in Manhattan. Tickets for the event can be purchased on and cost $18 until May 15th; afterward, you'll pay $25 until the day of the event. The entrance fee includes two tacos from the Tribeca Taco Truck and two drinks courtesy of Butternuts Beer & Ale and The Naked Grape winery. Additional activities planned for the festival include live music, trip and gear giveaways, bocce ball and some undisclosed events. Lonely Planet’s U.S. editor, Robert Reid, will be the festival’s keynote speaker.
