Family of Woman Film Festival
Mon, Feb 27, 2017 (All day) to Sun, Mar 5, 2017 (All day)
The Family of Woman Film Festival was founded in Sun Valley, Idaho, in 2008, by Friends of UNFPA Board Member, Peggy Elliott Goldwyn, to bring attention to the work of the United Nations Population Fund, which works in more than 150 countries to assure women and girls have access to reproductive health care, education and basic human rights.
The Festival presents five feature documentaries and dramatic films each year from around the world that highlight the status of women in different societies.
This year’s festival theme is “Celebrating Women Who Inspire Change.” The Family of Woman Film Festival’s purpose is to raise awareness of the difficulties women and girls face throughout the world in gaining access to basic health care, education and human rights by presenting dramas and documentaries from around the globe telling compelling personal stories. Beyond film presentations, the festival also presents national and international filmmakers, film subjects and featured speakers. Several special events are planned as part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the Family of Woman Film Festival.
All films at the Festival at the Sun Valley Opera House are $15 and $60 for the entire film series. Tickets are available at the door for each screening and at Chapter One Bookstore and Iconoclast Books in Ketchum. Tickets will be available Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017.
