NWFFest is an annual event to celebrate and support the fair representation of women in film. We invite submissions from all genres, including shorts and features.

We are looking to showcase women directors and women in key crew positions. But we are also seeking stories with strong female characters or which otherwise depict women in a positive light.

    The Nevada Women's Film Festival was an outstanding experience for our film and team. Outstanding outreach and communication, paired with top-notch projection, events, and promotion. A "young", growing festival that really takes care of its filmmakers and audience.

    Nevada Women's Film Festival was a pleasure to attend this year. Fantastic theater and a very helpful and communicative staff. I was able to view some great films during the fest. Definitely worth the trip to Las Vegas. Thank you for selection!
