Film is for everyone

Film is one of the most accessible, inclusive, and engaging forms of art. Film can transport us to another world. Film can shine a light on issues. Film can envelope us with joy and introduce us to new cultures and ideas. At the Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival, we want to cultivate the joy of experiencing film and create shared experiences for all who attend.

Venues, blocks, & passes, oh my!

Planning your festival

We know festival planning can seem overwhelming, especially in this unique year.

We’ve curated the best way to plan an unforgettable festival this year.

01.Timing is everything

Many long-time film fans and local cinefiles take full advantage of all the weekend has to offer, watching as many films as the schedule allows. Other people prefer to dip in and out, sprinkling in other activities with their film viewing. However you choose to fest, we have a pass or ticket option for you to enjoy the Film Festival at your own pace.

02.Find your must-see films

You are your own best curator! Imagine going to a five star restaurant where everything on the menu is super tasty. That doesn’t mean you are going to like everything  which is why you read through all the offerings before ordering what best suits your palate. The exact same applies to selecting your films for the weekend. Every film has something to offer, but some will speak to you more than others.  

Selecting your Schedule lineup

03.Pick your blocks

The RMWFF creates each year’s film schedule within a block system. Each block starts at the same time in one of our screening venues. Some blocks contain a single feature, others may include two or more films, depending on length. 

 

The schedule is not designed to have people change venues during a block so once you choose, commit!  This allows you and the other patrons to enjoy all of the programming without disruption.

 

TIP – This year’s Virtual Encore lets you see what you might have missed, so grab the VIP Pass to have full access to see it all!

A block refers to the time scheduled for programming – very similar to a class period from when you were in school. Blocks all begin at the same time at each venue, with enough time between each to allow people to move from one venue to another (just like passing period in high school, but with less chaos!).

There are six blocks on Saturday and five on Sunday. You are free to attend any block of films with your pass; however, while your pass guarantees you a seat it does not guarantee you any specific film. Theaters do fill up, so if there is a film that you have your heart set on seeing plan to arrive at least ten minutes before the block is scheduled to start. Block Three is when most people typically grab lunch, and either attend a Filmmakers Forum or enjoy some time with friends discussing – what else – films!
The schedule allows for ample time to move from one venue to another between blocks. The schedule is not designed to allow changing venues during a block as it is disruptive to others in the theater.

Part of the fun of attending a film festival is selecting your own programming! Whether you map out your strategy well ahead of time or just wait to see where you land once you arrive, it’s all up to you.

A block refers to the time scheduled for programming – very similar to a class period from when you were in school.

Blocks begin at the same time for the Great Hall and Studio Bee screening rooms, with enough time between each to take a quick break and move from one venue to another if needed. 

There are five blocks on Saturday and four on Sunday. You are free to attend any block of films with your pass; however, while your pass guarantees you a seat it does not guarantee you any specific film. 

The Lunch block is when our Filmmakers Forum is, and you’re invited to bring your lunch if you’d like!

You’re in luck this year! While you can’t change venues during a block as it is disruptive to others in the theater, many of the films will also be shown in the Virtual Encore, so grab a VIP Pass to catch whatever you miss at the in-person Festival.

Be sure to look at the In-person and Virtual Encore schedules when you plan!

04.Pick Your Extras

It just isn’t a festival without some festive activities to complement your film watching! Make sure to build in some time to relax and recharge, whether it’s by attending any of the below options, or just taking a break from film-watching to enjoy our signature coffee and cookie break.  Stay tuned for more weekend event announcements.
