Nederland Film Festival

The Nederland Film Festival features off-kilter, out-of-the-ordinary, and wildly inventive films along with a focus on music film that draws from Nederland’s rich history centered around the Caribou Ranch where all the greatest acts of music produced records.

Come celebrate local filmmakers and films that are anything but ordinary! Films that defy expectations and take you to another world. The Nederland Film Festival showcases two days of film programming that’s as unique as the town of Nederland.

Focusing on the out of the ordinary, and the dramatically different films that you will not find at the standard Hollywood CinemaScope. The Backstage Theater in Nederland hosts films that make a statement and have a story to tell past and present & out there in the future.

We celebrate the visionaries of film centered around music in this special place, the independent thinkers, creatives, individualists that explore alternative cultures, life styles and visions and all the many ways that can manifest in film. We look forward to seeing you at our 2nd Annual Nederland International Film Festival.
