Colorado Independent Women of Film celebrates a unique style, perspective, and artistic vision within Colorado’s indie filmmaking community. Our ninth annual festival will showcase films from more than 20 local female filmmakers, including short narrative films, short and feature length documentaries, experimental works, and animations, with the filmmakers in attendance to take part in a spirited ‘talkback’ with the audience. We’ll see the return of some of Denver’s finest filmmakers and debut pieces from several first time participants. It’s shaping up to be an incredible year for women in the Colorado filmmaking community… don’t miss even a minute of it!
