Since 2001, the Nevada City Film Festival (NCFF) has brought top independent film, music, and comedy, along with attracting thousands of attendees, international filmmakers, and industry guests, to the historic town of Nevada City, California. Nevada City is known for its sophisticated and supportive arts and cultural scene and makes screening a film here a positive, encouraging, and exciting experience. NCFF is often referred to as the “Sundance of the Sierra” for its emphasis on fiercely independent cinema that showcases innovative, progressive, and exciting new voices in film. In 2019, NCFF was named for the second time by Moviemaker Magazine as one of the top 50 film festivals in the world worth the submission fee for filmmakers. In 2020, NCFF was named by USA Today as the #3 Best Festival in the US.
