Every summer, the Nevada City Film Festival makes art into a party, bringing a regional audience of movie lovers together with emerging and top independent filmmakers to showcase award-winning short and feature length films from around the world.  This year NCFF features 60+ award-winning short and feature length films from around the world, 35+ visiting filmmakers, Kaleidoscope Virtual Reality Showcasea special 10-year Anniversary screening of Little Miss Sunshine with filmmakers Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, Best of the Fest outdoor screening at Ol’ Republic Brewery, after parties and much more!  

“Every year people ask what the theme of the film festival is, and every year I reply with, ‘the best in independent cinema’,” explains Festival Director Jesse Locks. “This year though, there was a common thread that connected many of the films, and that was the pursuit of happiness.”  This year’s official selections promise to inspire and provoke festival-goers not only with the sometimes true stories shared, but by the creative and ingenious filmmaking methods and mediums in which they are told.

    Films, especially independent films, tell stories like no other medium. Seeing such films in such a beautiful place as the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, I just cannot think of anything more delightful.

    The NC Film Festival offers many inspiring messages and unique styles to enjoy. It is one of the many events which bring much culture to this beautiful community.
    My dear friend, who is a acupuncture therapist, is coming to visit to look for a new home here and enjoy the Film Festival with me. She would love to stay at the Inn Town Campground, so I am hoping to win the prize for her visit in Nevada City.

    An amazing local community effort set in the beautiful foothills…what could be better! I’m dying to check out Inn Town Campground and it just so happens to be my 40th Bday weekend. Fingers crossed!

    I’ve never been to a film festival before, but always wanted to go to one. I’ve always been very impressed with the live arts scene of local artist, and I know Nevada has an incredible one. Would be honored if I was selected as your winner. I can’t think of a better first time film festival venue than Nevada City. Lord knows I am in need of a great cultural experience! Been working hard all summer long with year end close and financial statement preparation. Momma needs some outside fun!

    I’ve never been glamping before, either. I know Outside Inn would set the bar high for me. This valley girl would just soak the experience in!

    And I already know about some of those tasty handmade goodies 🙂

    Thank you for the opportunity to win and experience The Ultimate Film Lovers Getaway!

    Good Luck Everyone!

    September 9th is our 16th Anniversary and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to come and spend the weekend enjoying all that Nevada City and the Inn Town campground Glamping sites has to offer! I am a busy Nurse who rarely gets time away to spend with my Husband and it would be pure joy to win and be able to take some much needed time for rest and relaxation. Blessings!

    I love the Nevada City Film Festival, because it’s where I got my start working in video locally. Jessie Locks gave me a job doing intern work for her, and I fell in love with the way independent film brought some many different types of people together. It is such an incredible event, and makes me so proud that our sweet town can offer it! 🙂
