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 LuncheonFriday, 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.

This year’s program honors women – both on-screen and off – whose compelling stories challenge audiences to forge new bonds with both the familiar and unfamiliar. We’re thrilled to host this 13th annual festival in person and together experience these new films, from both emerging and established filmmakers, begging to be seen on the big screen.

With the growing focus on the underrepresentation of women in the film industry, especially women with diverse backgrounds, the Festival is an important platform to shine the light on women working behind the scenes to create change.
