Inspire, educate, and Entertain

Through the Female Lens

The longest-running women’s film festival in North America honors films and filmmakers that present the world as women experience it. The Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival showcases documentary, narrative, shorts, and animated films that are thought-provoking, enriching, and encourage both global awareness and personal growth.

founded in 1987

It all started with two women and a great idea on the road back from the Telluride Film Festival in 1987. Over thirty years later, we’re still making a difference to people in our community as the longest-running women’s film festival in North America. Three decades of discovery, exploration, experiencing, and celebrating the drive, spirit, and diversity of women.

“I think we all had our different reasons for getting involved with starting the festival, but we shared the same big goal — to bring alternative, diverse visions of women’s stories to our community, and celebrate women’s creativity. 

Our intention was to expand people’s consciousness, including our own, and continue to grow wiser about all the important issues facing us in this complex world of special interests and the deft marketing of viewpoints connected to consumerism.”

Love, love, love this festival...both as a volunteer and as an attendee. Well organized, well thought out, thought provoking, and a great spectrum of films. Everyone is friendly, helpful, and enthusiastic. It has a really upbeat vibe! My favorite part is the filmmakers forums.

We loved everything about the festival this year. Your choice of films was great! Thanks to each and every volunteer. We appreciated your help, your enthusiasm, and some of you holding the umbrella for us as we crossed the street in the rain! My one problem was reading the tiny print on a dark background in your program. Next year I will bring a magnifying glass. Thank you all again.

RMWFI celebrates great film by and for women. For 21 years, I've been attending the film festival and every year my horizons have been broadened a little more, I get a few steps closer to enlightenment, and my appreciation for the world around me is deepened.

Once again, the festival was a weekend jam-packed with thought-provoking, entertaining, world-broadening films. Their impact has changed the way I look at my personal care products, service dogs in the community, even football games! So many amazing films, so little time; thank goodness for the RMWFI library!
