Facing Fistula by Morgan Walter | NWFFest 2023
Nevada Women’s Film Festival really went above and beyond! As a short film Official Selection with TONGUE IN CHEEK, I felt cared for, respected, seen and appreciated. The UNLV theaters were absolutely perfect! The design from the balloons, to the pink carpet, to the pamphlet was organized. The communication from the Board of Directors were very top tier, Kelsie is an amazing point person. Watching my film on the big screen and hearing the laughs around is such a memorable moment on my journey. Thank you NWFFest for believing in us and allowing for the amplification of Black women storytelling, the allyship is necessary and important and I felt that.
I met so many wonderful filmmakers at this festival and there was a real sense of community! Thank you so much NWFFest for your commitment to presenting an array of women’s films, I truly enjoyed my time with everyone here.
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!
I love this festival. Excellent programming and communication and really unique stories with unique voice.
Amazing experience! I met some amazing connections and enjoyed the incredible selection of films. Would absolutely attend again!
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!
Nevada Women’s Film Festival is a wonderful festival with a variety of films in all genres. Their communication has been excellent. I highly recommend the festival!!
We are thrilled that our short film “I Think It’s Broken” was selected for inclusion in the NWFFest. Excellent communication and professionalism! Can’t wait to submit again! Thank you so much for including us!
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!
Great filmmakers, professional and welcoming. I’d apply to this festival again! Thanks for the opportunity.
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.
