Boulder Filmmaking Incubator - A Resource for Independent and Emergent Filmmakers

Thanks for Visiting 

Founded in 2006 by award winning producer/director Marianne Leviton, the Boulder Filmmaking Incubator is a leader in producing independent movies… from short films to feature length… from narratives to documentaries… and winning numerous awards along the way.  

A reliable resource for Independent and Emergent filmmakers, the Boulder Filmmaking Incubator provides an environment where people from all disciplines of filmmaking can meet to share experiences, problem solve, bounce around ideas, and cooperate to make their films a reality. Our members (Incies) find that the opportunity to network and collaborate can be invaluable in helping a project reach its highest level of quality.

Working on your own projects? You may screen your work at our monthly meetings. Want to work on a project? Network with other filmmakers to get on board. Or… join in one of the Incubator’s Showcase group projects.


The Incubator meets monthly at the Boulder Digital Arts facility in Boulder, Colorado.  Registration is required.  Go to our Meetup page to sign up for our next meeting.

Participation in the Incubator is intended for serious filmmakers with all levels of experience.  You must be 18 years of age or older to attend.
