Building community around film
Rocky Mountain Women’s Film builds community around film by elevating the stories of women and others who are often unheard or unseen.
Rocky Mountain Women’s Film envisions community connected through the power of film.
The power of film
Rocky Mountain Women’s Film was founded and will continue to be led by women because we believe in the unique power, connection, and strength in women-led community.
Along with our mission to amplify and elevate a wider range of voices through film, we are committed to these values that drive our organization.
The power of under-represented voices
From our origins of elevating the under-represented voice of
women, we seek out and amplify the voices that need to be heard in our community through our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
Linda’s passion for film as a catalyst for community began when she started volunteering for the festival in 1994.

Linda has led the organization through a period of tremendous growth and today RMWF has an active year-round presence.
