COLORADO SPRINGS — A organization celebrating women’s voices hosts a month of events and films in the Colorado Springs area.

Starting in 1988 Rocky Mountain Women’s Film(RMWF) was created after Jere Martin and Donna Guthrie wanted to create a festival in Colorado Springs. 1988 was the first festival, screening 13 films, hosting four filmmakers, and having 300 attendees. Since then the festival has grown to have several venues and events throughout the year.

“It’s never been more important to listen to women’s voices than it is at this very moment,” said Linda
Broker, Executive Director of the Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival. “Nothing captures our
imaginations quite like film. Films transport us to another world and shine a light on the issues plaguing
ours. Quite simply, watching films makes us better people.”
