The Family of Woman Film Festival was founded in Sun Valley, Idaho, in 2008, by Friends of UNFPA (the United Nations Population Fund), Board Member, Peggy Elliott Goldwyn, to bring attention to the work of UNFPA, which works in more than 150 countries to assure women and girls have access to reproductive health care, education and basic human rights.
Each year the Family of Woman Film Festival presents five feature documentaries and dramatic films from around the world that highlight the status of women in different societies. Many of these films have been American premieres and have gone on to win major international awards. The Festival collaborates with many community organizations in the Wood River Valley in presenting films as well as introducing the community to key speakers on critical issues.
