About

The Family of Woman Film Festival was established in 2008 to raise awareness of the work of The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the leading global agency working to ensure that all women and girls have access to reproductive health care, education, and basic human rights. Five feature length documentaries and dramas from around the world are presented each year, focusing on the status of women in different cultures. Past Festival themes have focused on critical international issues, such as the effects of war on women and the role of women in the Arab Spring movement. Throughout the Festival week, filmmakers of award-winning films, the subjects of these films, and international speakers, engage with the community through free public lectures and programs at local schools. In 2015, the Festival launched a new partnership with Women Deliver, an international advocacy organization for women and girls’ health, rights and wellbeing. Family of Women films have also been presented at a satellite Festival in Chicago, as well as in Boise, through a partnership with Boise State University. >>more
