It’s our strongest lineup of films yet,” expressed Denver Film Education and PR director Neil Truglio. “We’re bringing in a few films from Sundance and other festivals from across the country.”

The Women + Film Festival is a product of the non-profit Denver Film Society. Its mission is to educate, inspire and cultivate the Denver community through the showing of films by, for and about women. In the past, its brought in some heavy hitters, for example, last year’s opener Dolores. Produced by Carlos Santana, this heartfelt film premiered at Sundance examined labor-rights activism and a woman’s work as co-founder of the National Farmworkers Association.

“Women + Film is a chance for audiences to see new films that they wouldn’t otherwise see in multiplex theatres,” said Truglio. “And it’s really a focused reflection of what’s happening with women and film in our world today.”

Films featured in the Women + Film Festival gained attention from publications across the US, as well as known film giants from The Seattle International Film Festival to Montclair Film Festival. And we don’t expect this year to be any different. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate women than kicking back with popcorn and a drink at this years film festival.
