The Athena Film Festival: Workshop, Watch, & Win!

The second annual Athena Film Festival kicks off on February 9 on the Barnard College campus. Founded to honor extraordinary women for their leadership and creative accomplishments, the festival will screen films made by and about women all weekend, as well as hold free (free!) workshops for filmmakers. How fun! If we lived in New York we'd definitely attend, and if you live there you should!

In addition to the workshops (did we mention they're free?), the Athena Film Festival is hosting some pretty awesome-sounding panels throughout the weekend. Get a sneak peek at Half the Sky and Ann Richards' Texas and catch up on feminist fare you may have missed like Gloria: In Her Own Words and Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre on Tour. For a full schedule of the events of the festival, visit the official website.

To sweeten this already sweet film festival deal, we've got two pairs of free tickets to Wish Me Away, the story of lesbian country singer Chely Wright. The first two people to comment saying they'd like tickets are the winners, so get to it!
