Each party pitched a specific project to bring more art into the city. Concrete Couch and the Pioneers Museum have plans for kid and family activities throughout the year. The RMFF, along with the Rocky Mountain Women's Film Festival, the Lavender Film Festival and the Indie Spirit Film Festival seek to hold a brand new film fest under the theme of community itself, called Zoom In!.
