At our festival you can expect to find happy artists and enthusiastic audiences, making for a one of-a-kind experience. The Nevada City Film Festival also offers terrific opportunities to forum with other filmmakers and artists.

Simply put, the Nevada City Film Festival is a festival created by filmmakers for filmmakers. Your experience at the festival is extremely important to us, and we put a lot of time and energy into making sure our artists have as good a time as our attendees. If your film is selected, we’ll work with you to arrange travel, lodging and an overall great festival experience.

If you are a local filmmaker living in Nevada, Placer, Yuba, Sierra or Sacramento Counties please email info@nevadacityfilmfestival.com for a Local Filmmaker film submission waiver.

Nevada City Film Festival proudly accepts entries via FilmFreeway.com, the world’s best online submission platform. FilmFreeway offers free HD online screeners, unlimited video storage, digital press kits, and more.

**Due to the incredible number of submissions we received this year, we are still formalizing our programs. We will now notify filmmakers by July 1st. Thank you for understanding and your patience!**
