 The Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival (RMWFF) is the longest-running women’s film festival in the United States. The festival has taken place in Colorado Springs since 1988.  

     This year, the festival is being held virtually for the first time as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The festival will showcase its usual content in 36 films this year, focusing on films directed by women. 

     Two of the films included in the schedule are “Blessed Child,” a documentary about a woman who escapes a religious cult, and “In the Shadow of the Pines,” an animated film about a complicated father-daughter relationship.  

     The festival is the perfect opportunity to discover women filmmakers. You can preview the full list of films being shown here.  

     Two or three films will be made available per day to stream online over a span of nine days between Nov. 13-21. Tickets for the festival will officially go on sale on Oct. 20. Prices vary based on the number of films you plan to view, from $10 per film, $40 for 5 films, $75 for 10 films and more. Tickets can be purchased here. 

     RMWFF also hosts events in the Colorado Springs community throughout the year. You can learn more about their organization on their website rmwfilm.org
