What is a Moonshot?

It is an ambitious, ground-breaking goal with the potential to change everything. A reminder that nothing in this universe is out of reach.

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy announced the seemingly impossible goal of putting a human being on the moon by the end of the decade.

No one knew how it could be achieved. And yet it was - ahead of schedule, providing a historic testament to the awe-inspiring power of dreaming big and surmounting every hurdle along the way.

A “moonshot factory” is a place that consistently values forward-thinking endeavors and commits its resources to make big dreams a reality, no matter what the obstacles.

Welcome to UNLV FILM, where we are reaching for the (cinematic) stars every day.

We’ve got the will and the spirit to set visionary goals and reach them.

You can help us. Every contribution gets us one step closer to our future.
