Colorado Springs, CO, October 30, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival is 25 years old and looks great.
This year's Festival, taking place Nov 2 – 4, 2012, includes thirty-two films, eleven filmmakers/film subjects and two filmmakers forums. Films are shown at Cornerstone Arts Center, Armstrong Theatre and the Fine Arts Center in Colorado Springs.
The Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival is the longest continuous-running women's film festival in North America. It showcases documentary, feature, short and animated films that are thought provoking and enriching, and that encourage global awareness and personal growth. The Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival honors films and filmmakers that present the world as women experience it and that inspire curiosity, educate, entertain, and stimulate conversation.
The Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival, founded in 1988, was the brainchild of Donna Guthrie and Jere Martin. After attending the Telluride Film Festival in 1986, Jere says they were inspired to “create a film festival of our own, centered on women’s stories; whether it was a film about a woman or a film by a woman, with a great passion for some subject.”
The community has whole-heartedly embraced the Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival and twenty-five years later the festival employs an Executive Director, relies on almost forty volunteers and welcomes over 1,000 people to their 3-day festival each November.
