The festival will showcase 10 new independent films—two feature-length films and eight shorts—produced, written and directed by women. You'll hear fresh voices, innovative story-telling and narratives that explore the diverse and complicated experiences of women from across the world. Best of all, you'll be supporting women filmmakers and raise funds for UN Women's life-changing programs.

Cap off the festival on a high note by joining us at the Filmmaker Awards Afterparty, co-hosted by Lyft, where you'll mingle with industry insiders, film aficionados and the filmmakers. Honor their bold vision and hear the filmmakers discuss how we can change the representation of gender in film. Dinner and drinks included.

Spring 2017 Chapter Update: Letter from the President

Dear Members & Friends,

Happy Spring! The SF Chapter of USNC-UN Women has a lot going on right now! Board of Directors elections, film fest and Silicon Valley Gender Equality Summit planning, annual membership meeting coming up soon…Four of our board members, including me, were honored to be delegates to the UN’s 61st Session of the Commission on the Status of Women in March in New York. We got to participate in talks about the challenges, progress and future of women’s economic empowerment in the workplace and meet leaders of UN Women and the UN! The highlight for me was getting to speak one-on-one with Amina J. Mohammed, the new Deputy Secretary-General of the UN, a brilliant Muslim feminist mother of six from Nigeria. She was delighted to hear about our chapter’s forthcoming events and appreciative of our efforts to fundraise for UN Women. Let’s keep up the great work!

Amy Logan
President
