The 9th Annual Nevada Women’s Film Festival returns to fabulous Las Vegas June 22-25, 2023!
This year our event takes place at the UNLV Department of Film and features 108 films, by and about women, from 22 countries.
Highlights include our 2023 Nevada Woman of Achievement, Berenice Chávez, who will be honored for her outstanding work as an editor. Berenice’s credits include the Netflix documentary, Pamela, a Love Story. A special screening of this film will be shown in conjunction with a conversation with Berenice Friday night, followed by our Filmmakers’ Reception on campus at the Marjorie Barrick Museum.
On Saturday evening, we are are pleased to host the Nevada Premiere of Miranda’s Victim, a powerful historical drama with an all-star cast. Filmmaker Michelle Danner is our 2023 Vanguard honoree for this project, and will sit down with Dr. Heather Addison to discuss bringing this story to the screen.
Our festival concludes on Sunday with the Ninth Annual Femmy Awards. Nominees to be announced soon!

This festival is so well organized and everyone is delightful.
Their communication is great. I really enjoyed the virtual aspect included with the live events. Thank you for selecting Guardian and for inviting me to be part of the Q&A after the festival screening! We met a lot of fantastic filmmakers this year and we can’t wait to attend in person next time!
It was such an honour for our film ‘Dandelion’ to be selected to this awesome festival that celebrates women’s stories. Despite not being able to attend in person we were kept well informed and given lots of opportunities to take part virtually. Thanks everyone at NWFFest!
I love NWFFest!!! The staff makes your entire team feel like their work is valued, and you can tell that love went into planning every phase of the event. The staff is so d*** lovable, and they take the time to get to know each filmmaker by name, which isn’t very common at festivals nowadays. I appreciate NWFFest because they appreciate us! Thank you, NWFFest!
After traveling to many festivals all over the country, I’m still so glad that we premiered at NWFFest. It was the best atmosphere. I loved how the blocks were curated so shorts and features shared the same block. I think it really opened up for more people to see more of a cross section of films. I made great contacts there with other filmmakers that have helped throughout this process. Such a great weekend in so many ways.
