Horsetooth International Film Festival

NOCO’s first ever Horsetooth International Film Festival believes that vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others. The HIFF is a one day event hosted in the heart of Northern Colorado, at the historic Rialto Theatre in Downtown Loveland. The 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 that spark positive change through knowledge-sharing and creative works. The event will feature several film categories, live musical performances, and art installations by local talent.

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.

Your HIFF Team includes John Hunt, Jesse Nyander, Katrina Pfannkuch, Taylor Strope, Hannah Baker, Juan Andres Rodriguez Palazuelos, and Juliana Trujillo Escobar.
