The Nederland International Film Festival set for September 9, 10 and 11 in Nederland Colorado will focus on the out of the ordinary, the dramatically different film 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 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 2nd Annual Nederland International Film Festival.

    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 filmmakers...you won't regret it!

    What a marvelous first year festival in the stunning mountain town of Nederland, Colorado. Jill Brooke gets deep bows of gratitude for her love of film, filmmakers and bringing art to smaller towns throughout Colorado!! Keep an eye on this one it's going to do great things.

    I had a great time at the first Nederland Film Festival. The staff were very supportive and communicative throughout the process. The films selected were of good quality, and audience turnout was good for a first year festival in a beautiful small mountain town. The venue was a vintage theater with a big screen, which I always appreciate as a filmmaker. We had a chance to meet and mingle with audience members and fellow filmmakers who were able to give us some good feedback on our film. One suggestion I have could be including some filmmaker workshops during the weekend, which could be a lot of fun and could allow for some additional networking at future festival years. A big thank you to Jill, Jake, and the rest of the Nederland staff for making this special festival happen! Getting a festival off the ground for the first time is no easy task, but they did it like pros.
