3rd Annual Women of The West Film Festival

Saturday, September 16, 2017

This evening of food, film and friendship is dedicated to telling women’s stories, shedding light on their collective concerns, and empowering them through the dynamic medium of film. The evening opens with a buffet featuring foods from around the world and a no-host bar at 5:30 p.m., followed by a short-film program, and the introduction of this year’s keynote ~ the Mighty “Ruthie” Bolton ~ prior to the screening of the inspirational documentary Mighty Ruthie. Bolton is a Women’s National Basketball Association legend, an Olympic gold medalist, author, actress and domestic violence survivor. WOW, the first film festival of its kind in California, provides a platform for women to give voice to their unique, cinematic perspectives.
