Come join us for the Nederland International Film Festival set for November 16, 2019 in Nederland Colorado focusing on the out of the ordinary, and the dramatically different films that you will not find at the standard Hollywood CinemaScope. The Backstage Theater in Nederland hosts films that make a statement and have a story to tell past and present & out there in the future.
We celebrate the visionaries of film centered around music in this special place, the independent thinkers, creatives, individualists that explore alternative cultures, life styles and visions and all the many ways that can manifest in film. We look forward to seeing you at our 3rd Annual Nederland International Film Festival.

We highly encourage you to submit ALL submission materials online through FilmFreeway. If online entry is not possible, please submit 1 Blu Ray preferably or 1 DVD if Blu Ray is not possible. (any region, NTSC encouraged). Please do not include any promotional materials in your submission. We will collect high-resolution photographs of official selection films once they have been accepted into the Festival.

Film entries may be of any subject pertaining to the categories defined, from any country, and of any length. Submitted films should either be in English or include English subtitles. If the film is selected for the Festival, it is the responsibility of the filmmaker to provide 1 Blu Ray preferably or 1 DVD if Blu Ray is not possible.
If you choose to submit your film by mail you are responsible for all shipping charges to DHFF and for any customs clearances and/or associated fees and taxes. Entry materials will not be returned. All film makers will be added to our mailing list that submit.

    Love the folks at the Nederland International Film Festival. Even though this was the first year, I can see this fest becoming huge because the setting and the organization are top notch. Communication was wonderful and the screening venue had great picture and sound. Get thee to the mountains won't regret it!
