High Desert International Film Festival

High Desert International Film Festival

Type: Regular shortfilm festival
Location: Pahrump, Nevada
Start Month: May


Description

Now in our 11th season of the High Desert International Film Festival and, from the start, the focus has always been on supporting a sense of community.

During our humble beginnings, we engaged our hometown community in competitions that would help us name the festival; and create the art that would become our award.
This competitive spirit continues in an annual competition to create the poster art that will be the public face of the festival each year. Our local high school art classes participate in this as a graded class project with prizes and accolades. The student inspirations always yield the most breathtaking results—so much so that the efforts of 64 students were on proud display all during the most recent festival.
