Building community around film

Our Mission

Rocky Mountain Women’s Film builds community around film by elevating the stories of women and others who are often unheard or unseen. 

Our Vision

Rocky Mountain Women’s Film envisions community connected through the power of film. 

The power of film

We. Love. Film! Films can change our mood — make us laugh, cry, gasp, swoon; they can change our mind — bring up questions, show us a different angle, provoke a conversation. They entertain us and capture our imaginations. They transport us to another world; they shine a light on the issues plaguing ours.
As a film organization, we want to cultivate the joy of experiencing film and harness the power of films that help people communicate and connect with each other around that shared experience.

Our values

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.

CURIOSITY + Enrichment

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.
