Nevada Women's Film Festival 2017
NWFFest is a project of the Nevada Women's Film Collective, a nonprofit organization of film professionals from around the community. The mission of NWFFest is to celebrate and support the fair representation of women in film.
We are the only film festival in the state of Nevada to showcase women directors and women in key crew positions. Just as importantly, we seek stories with complex female characters or which depict women in a positive light...no tired stereotypes.
This year we are pleased to host featured guest filmmaker Ana Lily Amirpour. A screening of her acclaimed film, "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night," will be followed by discussions with this extraordinary director as well as a Q&A session, moderated by Roudi Boroumand.
We are also pleased to honor this year's Nevada Woman Filmmaker of the Year: May May Luong. Our "Evening With May May Luong" explores her esteemed career as a producer in our community, and will be followed by a champagne reception.
The festival will also feature a distinguished panel event -- Finding our Voices: Diversity and Inclusion in the Film and Television Industry. This discussion will be moderated by Dr. Heather Addison, and will be followed by a special screening of "The Track," directed by Brett Caroline Levner.
As always, NWFFest supports a diversity of worldview, background, gender and experience. Our programming lineup includes films of all genres from across the globe. Local Nevadans and student filmmakers will be highlighted, including a lively showcase from this year's Young Filmmakers' Workshop.
The festivities will be capped off with our third annual Femmy Awards, an opportunity to honor the work of our remarkable filmmakers.
In festivals past we have enjoyed films that amused and entertained us, and panels that have enlightened us. We have explored issues that affect women on a global scale, and have witnessed the power of art to affect positive change
We look forward to another inspiring weekend in March (Women's History month), where we will come together to celebrate and support the fair representation of women in film.
See you at NWFFest 2017!
