This weeklong Festival will showcase a mix of short films, documentaries, and feature presentations with many in-person guests in order to highlight thought-provoking, inspirational stories of women from around the world. And what’s a film festival without hospitality events, including a pre-Festival gathering, Opening Night and Closing Night receptions, and a special brunch for donors & sponsors on Closing Day.
Panel Discussion followed by Blackfish Film Screening and Q&A with Director
Join us for a riveting discussion with two female innovators focused on advancing their fields and providing new paradigms for women in the workplace. Jacque Hinman, President and Chief Executive Officer of CH2M HILL, one of the world’s largest engineering/design/build firms, and award-winning film director Gabriela Cowperthwaite discuss the importance of STEM training for women and girls, the importance of creativity to the process of innovation, and how diversity of thought leads to better outcomes in diverse fields.
A screening of Cowperthwaite’s lauded and controversial film, Blackfish, follows the discussion. The event is produced by the Biennial of the Americas in partnership with the Women’s Foundation of Colorado and the Denver Film Society.
Screening to take place at UA Denver Pavilions
We recognize the importance of women being employed in careers traditionally dominated by men to not only increase their earning potential but to also represent diverse ideas, experiences and perspectives.
Please join us as we celebrate the more than 2.5 million women and girls who live in Colorado – and comprise half its population and nearly half its workforce – who are integral to the state’s economic status and overall well-being.*
When women and girls thrive, whole communities prosper around the world.
