ADVICE FOR THE PRESIDENT
Former Gov. Mike Leavitt has something to say to the next president of the United States, and some prospective presidents need to hear it more than others. Still, Leavitt, a cabinet member in the George W. Bush administration, will speak to you first about High Octane Diplomacy: Foreign Policy Advice for the Next President. If you're wondering what the "high octane" part is all about, you'll just have to drop by and listen. Vieve Gore Concert Hall, Emma Eccles Jones Conservatory, Westminster College, 1840 S. 1300 East, 801-484-7651, Tuesday, Nov. 1, 7 p.m., free, Bit.ly/2eBDoTt

RAPE CULTURE DISCUSSION
No, this is not about Donald Trump—not exactly. Sexual assault has been highlighted in the news through football, college campuses and yes, campaign buses. Jessica W. Luther—author of Unsportsmanlike Conduct: College Football and the Politics of Rape and panelists discuss the cultures and attitudes that foster sexual assault, and insight on what Utahns can do to help change the conversation in Confronting Rape Culture: A Conversation About Consent. Can you recognize a sexual assault, and what would you do if you could? There will be a photo exhibit and visual displays before the panel at 7. S.J. Quinney College of Law, University of Utah, Moot Courtroom, Level 6, 383 S. University St., 801-581-6833, Wednesday, Nov. 2, 6:30-8:30 p.m., free, Bit.ly/2ePfcRp

FILM PREVIEWS
Can't get tickets to the Eccles Art Center? Why not take a leap of faith and check out four new films just released by Utah teens from Spy Hop? Ten young filmmakers have been working for the past year writing, shooting and editing documentaries and narrative fiction films as part of Spy Hop's Pitchnic film program. Two of the films this year explore the curative powers of art, while the others look at Utah's air quality and a young woman's identity quest. The films will be followed with a Q&A session with the filmmakers. Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, 138 W. 300 South, 801-355-2787, Wednesday, Nov. 2, 7:30-9:30 p.m., $10, ArtTix.org, SpyHop.org
