Discover why we've been called the "Sundance of the Sierra Nevada Foothills". 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 helped 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 and comedians including Nick Kroll, Natasha Leggero, and Eric Andre. 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.
Our town takes pride in its renowned hospitality and works hard to ensure that filmmakers have a one-of-a-kind experience when visiting. The Festival creates an easy and intimate forum of exchange and interaction between filmmakers and a supportive and enthusiastic audiences. In-competition filmmakers also receive travel and accommodations to attend NCFF and every exhibiting filmmaker receives an all-access pass to screenings and events.
