Women flex their collective estrogen at this year's Broad Humor Film Festival in Venice at the only Los Angeles film festival that caters exclusively to feature films and shorts written and directed by women. Screening seven features and 36 shorts over three days, the festival opens with In the Land of Milk and Money, which pokes fun at mad cow disease, corporate greed, and the cult of motherhood.
