VOICES Film Festival was launched in Denver, Colorado in 2011 as one of the most ambitious and engaging cultural extravaganzas in the United States. Founded by Tammy Brislin and the Denver Film Society to coincide with the celebration of Women's History Month and International Women's Day on March 8th, now in its 5th year and spanning 6 days and nights, VOICES is known for featuring the best in new documentaries, narratives and short films, centered around women filmmakers, writers and producers.
The festival offers numerous ways for participants to engage with guest filmmakers through salons, panels, and parties. The program also includes educational workshops, volunteer opportunities, and many ways for participants to get engaged with the issues explored in film at a local level.
Every event highlights thought-provoking, empowering and activating stories of women from all walks of life, while raising awareness about social and cultural issues that often fly under the radar of mainstream media. This year, VOICES is launching its first Young Filmmakers Workshop for girls aged 12-18 to embolden and inspire the next generation of great cinematic artists.
Audiences naturally create conversations around these issues at VOICES, bringing stories back to their home and community, these important questions, gleaned from new perspectives and art forms, leave audiences asking, "How will I use MY voice for change?".
We want to hear from you!
