Women + Film

WOMEN + FILM not only celebrates the art and achievements of women filmmakers around the world but also brings together a community of scholars, civil and human rights advocates, community leaders and concerned members of the public to shine a spotlight on women’s and social justice issues through dialogues, panel discussions, workshops—and, of course, screenings.

WOMEN + FILM is now a featured monthly program at the Starz FilmCenter, and the Starz Denver Film Festival is proud to present an array of candid, thought-provoking, and often iconoclastic works by women—the likes of which aren’t often available or obvious to mainstream audiences.
