Many thanks to the SAG-AFTRA National Women’s Committee for its continued support of the Colorado Local and its participation in and sponsorship of the ninth annual Women+Film Festival at the Sie FilmCenter.
“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,” said festival founder Barbara Bridges.
Fifteen-plus films debuted this year, along with many special events for attendees, including the SAG-AFTRA-sponsored Female Filmmaker Reception. The closing night reception brought a screening of the film To the Stars and a lively Q&A with director Martha Stephens, screenwriter Shannon Bradley-Colleary and lead actor Kara Hayward. Colorado members appreciated the opportunity to see the film and network with other industry professionals. An estimated 2,000 people participated in this year’s Women+Film Festival, which ran April 9–14.
