The Women+Film Festival returned to in-person screenings at the Sie FilmCenter with the April 5 Opening Night presentation of National Geographic Documentary Films’ Fire of Love, a riveting retrospective following the love story of scientists Katia and Maurice Krafft and their unwavering passion for deciphering the mysteries of volcanoes.
The Festival concluded on April 10 with a Closing Night presentation of the animated biopic Charlotte from Good Deed Entertainment, a soulful retelling of the life of a prolific German-Jewish painter, Charlotte Salomon, coming of age during the Second World War.
In partnership with the Newman Center, Denver Film and Women+Film will honor Rita Moreno with the Barbara Bridges Inspiration Award at its Women+Film Awards Luncheon, Friday, May 13 at 11:00 a.m. at the Denver Art Museum. In addition to Moreno, Carlotta Walls LaNier will appear in person to receive the Women+Film Impact Award. LaNier, at age 14, was the youngest member of Black students, known as the Little Rock Nine, to enroll in the formerly all-white Little Rock Central High School in 1957.
