Thank you to all who attended or supported the Flatwater Film Festival in 2021! We hope you enjoyed the films and the company of all who were there! As a team, we learned so much from our first-year experience. It’s truly amazing that we all managed to keep moving forward during such a challenging time and brought this festival to life. But it would not have been possible without your support and encouragement.

We will continue to make improvements to our festival based on your feedback, so please head on over and fill out our post-festival survey.

On behalf of the team at FFF, we would like to express our sincere appreciation for your support. We look forward to seeing you all next year!

The Flatwater Film Festival is an annual event committed to bringing together established and first-time filmmakers from across the state of Nebraska to celebrate their art.

The Flatwater Film Festival was created for the sole purpose of:

To celebrate Nebraska filmmakers by providing a non-competitive platform that showcases their work, to develop a strong community that promotes inspiration and support, and ultimately to foster the next generation of Nebraska filmmakers.
