Day of Film
Each March (except 2020), starting in 2009, Zonta Club of Denver has hosted a Day of Film featuring films about women and issues of concern to women. The event is the club’s major fundraiser and provides funds to support projects of the Zonta Club of Denver (ZCD) and of Zonta International (ZI), empowering women and girls in the Denver area and around the world.
The 13th Annual (and first virtual) Day of Film, on March 26-27, 2021, was in partnership with LUNAFEST®. LUNAFEST is a national traveling film festival featuring short films by, for, and about women in order to simultaneously promote women filmmakers, raise awareness for women’s issues, and support worthy women’s nonprofits. It was a big success! We thank all our sponsors and all who purchased tickets.
We are looking forward to our in-person 2022 Day of Film on March 26. In addition we will be hosting LunaFest in April for those out-of-state guests and those uncomfortable with an in-person venue. And, there’s no reason you can’t do both!
Zonta’s Day of Film 2022
I Was a Child Bride
In America, a shocking number of teenage and younger girls are forced into marriages against their will because of legal loopholes in most states. Many believe this only happens in developing countries, but in the past 15 years, an estimated 200,000 girls have been forced into marriage in the US. This documentary reveals the heart-wrenching stories of child marriage victims, who against all odds, escaped the most dire of circumstances. These brave survivors tackle this taboo issue in their personal lives and help to shine a light on the national epidemic with the hope that no child will ever have to be a victim again.
