What They Say

Mountain towns, or at least rustic towns in a foothill-type setting, have a way of attracting really excellent film festival. Yep, we’re looking at you, Park City and Telluride, but California boasts a few bashes that qualify. One of the fun and funkiest is the Nevada City Film Festival, a four-day film-a-torium that alights near the end of summer.

Sacramento News & Review
From the beauty of the mountains surrounding this lovely town to the bountiful summertime swimming in the Yuba River and smartly programmed events, the Nevada City Film Festival is a charming festival we’d attend again in a heartbeat.
Arne Johnson & Shane King, Director, GIRLS ROCK!
Hip but never alienatingly so, the festival is just kind of groovy, like the town that holds it.
