Film has the power to influence change, provoke thought and encourage empathy. And without filmmakers there would be no film. For 35 years, RMWF has hosted hundreds of female filmmakers, who have been central to our success as we’ve watched their careers flourish and grow. This year, as we take time to reflect upon the legacy of RMWF, we want to celebrate those who have come alongside us. May 13-29, join us as we honor filmmaker and friend Lisa F. Jackson with a powerful schedule of her body of work (both virtually and in-person) and a pinnacle event with Lisa as the guest of honor. Click here to learn more about Lisa and her body of work.
Made possible by the Lori Cohen Endowment, a RMWF Legacy fund.

PATRIMONIO begins in 2015 as a mega development is poised to engulf a small Mexican community with a vast hotel/condo complex called Tres Santos. Marketed to wealthy Americans as “green” and “mindful” Tres Santos threatens to transform and overwhelm the idiosyncratic desert town of Todos Santos, quadrupling its population and causing irreversible damage: not only are the fishermen being forced off the beach they’re used for generations but the developers would also drain an already diminished aquifer, taking drinking water from a town where many residents have little or no access.
