Leading into this year's festival we are proud to present some fan favorites from past festivals. These films will include a live Q&A with the filmmaker after the virtual screening, in which they will be sharing a sneak peek at their new film in our 2020 lineup. #ThrowbackThursday events are generously sponsored by the English Family Foundation.

Join us for a conversation with Lisa Molomot, director of SCHOOL'S OUT: LESSONS FROM A FOREST KINDERGARTEN, which screened at the 2013 Rocky Mountain Women's Film Festival.



No classroom for these kindergarteners. In Switzerland’s Langnau am Albis, a suburb of Zurich, children 4 to 7 years of age, go to kindergarten in the forest every day, no matter what the weatherman says. The filmmakers follow the forest kindergarten through the seasons of one school year to make their documentary film School’s Out: Lessons from a Forest Kindergarten. This eye-opening film looks into the important question of what it is that children need at that age. There is laughter, beauty and amazement in the process of finding out.
