Nevada Women's Film Festival

The Nevada Women's Film Festival Returns to Las Vegas

Please Check Back Soon for Updates

Dear Filmmakers, Friends and Supporters,

In an effort to keep our community healthy, the Nevada Women’s Film Festival will be postponed to a later date. We will re-schedule as soon as we have more information about the health crisis and when it will be safe to gather together again.

We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause with travel plans.

Although we realize this is disappointing, please know that we will still have a festival that is every bit as amazing as the one we planned for 3/19 - 3/22.  All ticket purchases and sponsorships will be honored.

We appreciate your understanding. Please keep in touch on social media and we look forward to celebrating with you in person soon!

From all of us at NWFFest

...I have been fortunate to attend this festival before, both as a filmmaker and as an audience member, and to witness firsthand how it has grown and how their adept and indefatigable staff and volunteers have approached each new year, building upon previous years’ successes, and in turn fostering an inclusive and enriching setting for filmmakers and film lovers to gather, experience and discuss representation in new works and to champion the full span that is women’s varied perspectives. As the festival has developed they have also continually driven awareness about the challenges women face in the industry...The staff and volunteers involved...actively welcome filmmakers into the festival family and encourage them to engage with one another, with each other's stories and with the festival as a whole...  -- Eric Rice

With all of the headlines over the past few years about inclusion and gender parity in Hollywood, surely women are riding an unparalleled wave of representation.

Are We Censoring Our Humanity?

Destiny Faith Nelson is the NWFFest 2018 Local Filmmaker of the Year for her film, The Trap

I think we’re all guilty of it, myself included. We see someone’s thoughts expressed on a particular subject, usually one opposing our own perspective, and “judgment mode” immediately turns on, it lashes out and harsh negative words are spouted at people we actually care about and/or even other human beings we’ve actually never even met. We assume that this one perspective is the absolute representation of all that is this other human being.

So how would these conversations play out, face-to-face, looking another human being in the eye? Have our eyes been so glossed by the layer of gorilla glass that we’ve forgotten that we are human beings? I often private message those who I’ve opposed on Social Media, to sit down for coffee and talk about it. Some people like the idea, while with others, I hear crickets.
