The Zonta Club of the Pikes Peak Area invites you to attend their program meeting on Thursday, February 4 at 6:30 PM at Old Chicago Restaurant at Academy Boulevard and Austin Bluffs to hear more about the Rocky Mountain Women's Film Institute and view several award-winning short films.

Our guest speaker is Linda B. Broker. Linda has served as the executive director of the Rocky Mountain Women's Film Festival, recently renamed Rocky Mountain Women's Film Institute, since 2001. She began as a volunteer in 1994, and over the next eight years served as Festival Program Chair and Operations Committee Chair. Linda was hired by the Festival in 2001 as the first paid executive director. During her tenure, the Festival has experienced significant growth, and has gained in prestige and recognition.

The main mission of the Rocky Mountain Women's Film Institute is to inspire community and elevate the voices of women through film. The RMWFI is committed to supporting women filmmakers, as well as promoting film as art and education. The Institute holds three events annually - the Rocky Mountain Women's Film Festival, Shorts Night and Wheel to Reel. The Rocky Mountain Women's Film Festival is the longest running women's film festival in North America and honors films and filmmakers that present the world as women experience it. Shorts Night, a one-night only event presents a lineup of awarding winning short films. Wheel to Reel includes a bike ride and outdoor film screening. In addition, the Film Institute invites film makers to a retreat in the mountains each year to discuss issues and challenges facing women directors.

The program is open and free to the public. Old Chicago Restaurant is located at 4110 N. Academy Blvd. in Colorado Springs. Dinner is available for purchase.
