The Women of The West Film Festival is returning Sat.

The evening opens with a buffet featuring foods from around the world and a no-host bar at 5:30 p.m., followed by a short-film program, and the introduction of this year’s keynote ~ the Mighty “Ruthie” Bolton ~ prior to the screening of the inspirational documentary Mighty Ruthie.
