"The festival is based around International Women's Day," says fest director Tammy Brislin. On the March 8 day of awareness, the FilmCenter will host a trio of films that share women's cross-continental stories, from the male-dominated fields of sports in Twiga Stars: Tanzania's Soccer Sisters to the military combat expose and Academy Award-nominated Poster Girl.
Adding a little pop-cultural fun to the lineup, the FilmCenter's Watching Hour series will give Mean Girls another run on the big screen on Friday, March 9.
Ethel is described as a revealing portrait of Robert F. Kennedy's widow, directed by the couple's youngest daughter, who was born six months after Kennedy's death. The show begins at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a reception; tickets are $25 (or $20 for Denver Film Society members).
