Rocky Mountain Women's Film Institute, since 2001. She began as a

Program Chair and Operations Committee Chair. Linda was hired by the
Festival in 2001 as the first paid executive director. During her tenure,
the Festival has experienced significant growth, and has gained in

The main mission of the Rocky Mountain Women's Film Institute is to
inspire community and elevate the voices of women through film. The RMWFI
is committed to supporting women filmmakers, as well as promoting film as
art and education. The Institute holds three events annually - the Rocky
Mountain Women's Film Festival, Shorts Night and Wheel to Reel. The Rocky
Mountain Women's Film Festival is the longest running women's film
festival in North America and honors films and filmmakers that present the
world as women experience it. Shorts Night, a one-night only event
presents a lineup of awarding winning short films. Wheel to Reel includes
a bike ride and outdoor film screening. In addition, the Film Institute
invites film makers to a retreat in the mountains each year to discuss
issues and challenges facing women directors.
