Welcome to the 5th Annual Nevada Women's Film Festival!

We're very excited to announce that our tribute to Diana Eden, our 2018 Nevada Woman of Achievement, is now available on Amazon Prime streaming. This was filmed during the 2018 festival. Diana gives an in-depth interview about her career in costume design and working in the Nevada entertainment industry.

It’s a simple way to let those we care for know they are not forgotten, though we may not be in each other's lives the way we once were. But when the text response from my high school friend came back with a terse: We don't celebrate holidays, it shook me.
