Film Library

As an ongoing  commitment to build community around film, we welcome you to explore a catalog of titles that have been shown at the Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival over the last 35 years. These films celebrate the drive, spirit and diversity of women, while sharing the stories and experiences of those often unheard or unseen.


Gabriel Valentine, 17, is a rising senior at Palmer High School. Since he was little, Gabriel has been drawn to film and video cameras and the impulse to help people tell their stories. At Palmer, Gabriel has been active in Terror TV, a school television program. In addition, he has produced short media pieces for Inside Out in Colorado Springs. For his YDA project, Gabriel wanted to investigate fatherhood through the eyes of those who’ve had strong fathers, and through his own eyes: since Gabriel was two, he’s been raised exclusively by one parent, his mother. When he turns the camera on her, the film becomes an intimate testament to parenthood in general as a mother and son come to deeper terms with their own special relationship in the absence of a father.
