Thank you for making Zonta's Day of Film 2018 a huge success!
Zonta's Day of Film 2018 as March 31, 2018. It was the largest crowd we have ever had.
Day of Film 2018 featured "Little Stones." "Little Stones" weaves together the personal narratives of a graffiti artist speaking out against domestic violence in Brazil’s poorest neighborhoods, a dancer rehabilitating sex-trafficking survivors in India, a Senegalese rap-singer working to combat genital mutilation, and an American fashion designer whose company employs impoverished Kenyan women.
The proceeds of the event will allow the Zonta Club of Denver Foundation to finance projects of the Zonta Club of Denver (go here for information about past projects) and of Zonta International, benefiting women in the Denver area and around the world.
The Zonta International Foundation provides funding of more than $1 million each year for programs and projects that benefit thousands of women around the world, including projects that seek to reduce the incidence of violence against women and girls. For more information, click here.

Thank you for supporting Zonta's Day of Film 2017, "No Job for a Woman."
When World War II broke out, reporter Martha Gellhorn was so determined to get to the frontlines that she left husband Ernest Hemingway, never to be reunited. Ruth Cowan’s reporting was hampered by a bureau chief who refused to talk to her. Meanwhile, photojournalist Dickey Chappelle wanted to get so close to the action that she could feel bullets whizzing by. This award-winning documentary tells the colorful story of how these three tenacious war correspondents forged their now legendary reputations during the war— when battlefields were considered no place for a woman.
In 2011, Zonta Club of Denver was recognized with a National Philanthropy Day® award for demonstrating “outstanding commitment through financial support and the encouragement and motivation of others to take leadership roles in philanthropy and community involvement.” The award was presented at the annual National Philanthropy Day in Colorado awards luncheon, and members of the club attended the event to accept the award.
