25th annual Rocky Mountain Women's Film Festival kicks off Friday in Colorado Springs

The Rocky Mountain Women's Film Festival, now in its 25th year, brings a strong, diverse selection of films to the region this weekend for viewing, discussion and celebration. The longest-running women-centered film festival in North America, it will showcase both fiction and non-fiction work starring, written, directed and filmed by women. With more than two dozen films on tap for this edition -- including Inocente, the story of a homeless, undocumented teen's struggle with life and the pursuit of her art, and the critically acclaimed The Invisible War, which captures the mass cover-ups of rape in the military -- the range of topics is far-reaching.
