The Horsetooth International Film Festival is a three day regional, multi-town, multi-venue event designed for creatives, artists, and film lovers alike.
Inspiration for the festival is built around the desire to introduce Northern Colorado as a revered international destination where creativity, diversity, and progressive thought are developed and celebrated through the art of filmmaking and other forms of creative expression.
The main event will be hosted at the historic Rialto Theatre in Downtown Loveland. Focus of the inaugural festival is to further elevate and unite a growing local film scene by inviting international contributors to interact with the local filmmaking community for a full day of film screenings, creativity, and celebration.
The event will feature several film categories, live musical performances, and art installations by local talent. There will also be a featured musical artist to close out the festival in addition to an awards ceremony for the filmmakers.
