Mission / description The Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival is the longest continuous-running women's film festival in North America. It showcases documentary, feature, short and animated films that are thought-provoking and enriching, and that encourage global awareness and personal growth. The Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival honors films and filmmakers that present the world as women experience it and that inspire curiosity, educate, entertain, and stimulate conversation.

The Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival was the brainchild of Donna Guthrie and Jere Martin. After attending the Telluride Film Festival in 1986, Jere says they were inspired to “create a film festival of our own, centered on women’s stories; whether it was a film about a woman or a film by a woman, with a great passion for some subject.”

The community whole-heartedly embraced the Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival and twenty-three years later the festival employs an Executive Director, relies on almost forty volunteers and welcomes over 1,000 people to their 3-day festival each November.
