The Fifth annual, AndShesDopeToo "Lady Wild Film Fest" is an Inspiring one day event in Ogden, Utah (for Ladies, Gents, & kids of all ages) where we join together in the celebration of strong and inspiring women from around the world, who push the boundaries of adventure, sisterhood and balance in their daily lives. The evening showcases a variety hand picked films and film genres featuring female leads & characters that will you leave you with a sense of wonderment, awe and self reflection, refreshing your mind, body and soul and inspiring us all to become our best version of self. The Lady Wild Film Fest is truly a night of celebration and elevation on the Wasatch.
We first decided to hold the inaugural LWFF in efforts to raise the funds necessary to produce, from start to finish our very first Award Winning Film, Moksha. The Sundance Film Festival had just announced pulling out of the Ogden specific venues for the first time in more than a decade, and we jumped on the opportunity to present something fresh and new on the exact weekend that Sundance had previously been a staple. Since then we have come to realize the wonderful impact that our festival had on our entire community here on the Wasatch, and with such beautiful ties to so many strong women from around the world, our festival has now become an exciting adventure in and of itself. Opening in 2017 we had a huge showing of 1000+ attendees, following in 2018 with with more than 1200. For this reason we have since moved locations to the (1400 seated) Austad Auditorium, located at the Browning Center on the Beautiful Weber State University mountain side campus.
Two years ago we added the addition of the spoken word. Our inaugural speaker being former professional skier - two-time world champion, five-time X-Games medalist and four-time national champion in halfpipe skiing ,life coach, entrepreneur, writer, adventurer, podcaster and sports broadcaster, Jen Hudak.
We have also showcased local/well known performers in song, dance and storytelling.
The LWFF is an event which provides guests and content creators with a "classy meets casual" evening including some of northern Utah's favorite local eats, drinks, beats & bands! We also include a hefty Raffle giveaway(included with each ticket) from our wonderful festival partners. So come and enjoy all the visuals, sounds, ideas and people that come together for this first of the year festival that is sure to uplift you, inspire you and leave you stoked for more!
