Ruby Mountain Film Festival

The Ruby Mountain Film Festival (September 27-30, 2012) is dedicated to the exhibition and nurturing of film and video as an art. The RMFF presents a full range of storytelling through visual arts from independent and student filmmakers to big budget major motion pictures with a particular emphasis on low budget feature films, student films and westerns.

The Ruby Mountain Film Festival in Elko - The mission

The RMFF is an annual event which takes place August 11-14 in Elko, Nevada. The film industry is constantly searching for creative, new artistic talent and vision. We seek to unite filmmakers with industry experts, students, educators and film lovers for an aspiring four day celebration of storytelling through visual arts. As a spotlight for programming RMFF will have a special film category award called The Ruby Award. This will be given to the best western film.

Sixty years ago Lowell Thomas called Elko "the last real cow town in the American West." Film buffs and movie goers have enjoyed 100's of Western films since that time. There has been a huge revival of Western films from "No Country for Old Men" and "3:10 to Yuma" recently to "True Grit" currently. RMFF will offer a retrospect of the modern depictions of the American Cowboy as it was the Western movies which shaped the worlds view of the West.

Although the Elko area is known by many as "Cowboy Country" its love of the cinematic experience has ties back to the 1940's. Older Elkoans may still remember the day when Hollywood Rancheros such as Bing Crosby, Joel McRae, and Jimmy Stewart owned ranches nearby and roamed about providing glamour and sophistication to the area. Elko entered a golden age at the end of the 1940's.

On February 7, 1948 Bing Crosby was named "Honorary Mayor of Elko" and held that post until his death in 1977. In July 1950 Bing Crosby also became a member of the Western Shoshone-Paiute tribe at Owyhee, near Elko. His Indian name was "Sond-Hoo-Vi-A-Gund" (the man of many songs). On July 30, 1951 Bing was in Elko for the world premier of "Here Comes the Groom". The movie premiered at the Hunter Theater, which is now the Commercial Casino parking lot.

In 1985 Cowboy Poetry was revived again and in 2000 received its national title. In 2005 the Western film "Don't Come Knocking" was shot and set in Elko. The film was directed by Wim Wenders and co-written by Wenders and the film's star Sam Shepard. Local saddle maker The J.M. Capriola Co. not only does worldwide business making saddles right upstairs in their shop but has notably made saddles for President Reagan, Sylvester Stallone and Harrison Ford. If you are not careful, you just might bump into an actor or filmmaker in Elko today.
