Our four-day film festival features the best in independent film, music and comedy, and attracts locals, international filmmakers, and industry guests to the beautiful Gold Rush era town of Nevada City, CA.

NCFF emphasizes fiercely independent cinema by showcasing innovative, progressive and exciting new voices in film, alongside repertory work that made us fall in love with the movies in the first place.

We’ve hosted filmmakers such as Mike Mills, Miranda July, Jonathan Krisel (Portlandia), Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (Adult Swim) and comedians including Nick Kroll (FX, Comedy Central), Natasha Leggero (Chelsea Lately, Last Comic Standing), and Mark Proksch (The Office). Our esteemed judges have included award-winning producers and directors, plus writers from The Huffington Post, New York Times, McSweeneys, San Francisco Chronicle, Rolling Stone Magazine, and Arthur Magazine.

We are now accepting submissions for the 2013 Nevada City Film Festival. Professional, student, and amateur filmmakers are invited to submit their short films (40 minutes and less) to the annual event. Last year, NCFF featured over 90 shorts and 10 feature lengths from all over the world.

All short films are eligible for the Festival Jury Award – $1,500 and the Audience Choice Award – $500.

Submission fee is waived for local filmmakers living in Nevada, Placer, Sierra, and Yuba Counties. Please contact festival directors at info@nevadacityfilmfestival.com for more information.
