Women + Film VOICES Film Festival 2012


Genre/Subject: Womens Issues

The Denver Film Society proudly presents the 2nd annual Women+Film Voices Film Festival, a six day event from Tuesday March 6 through Sunday March 11, 2012 - centered around International Women's Day, on Thursday March 8. Through documentaries, feature films, salons, and many in-person guests, Voices will showcase thought-provoking, inspirational stories of women from around the world. Each film will have a Voices host, either a woman personally involved with the film or a Denver community leader who will the film and lead a Q&A discussion afterwards. In addition, the Voices Salon Series will feature inspirational and accomplished women from the Denver area leading discussions on relevant issues featured in the Festival. This year the MacSpa Mobile Moviemaking event will expand into an on-line mobile film festival where participants from the community will have a chance to raise their own Voice and tell the inspiring story of someone they know.
