The 34th Annual Starz Denver Film Festival (aka Denver International Film Festival) opens this week in a new home: The Denver Film Center/Colfax, right next to The Tattered Cover Book Store and Twist and Shout. From their website:
An eleven-day roster of international screenings, red-carpet premieres and awards ceremonies—among them the prestigious Krzysztof Kieslowski Award for Best Feature Film, the Maysles Brothers Award for Best Documentary and the achievement-based John Cassavetes Award.
I’ve attended the festival for years and have never seen a film that was anything less than fascinating, even the flawed ones. The Q&As with directors, actors, writers and producers are also always worth checking out. Check the festival schedule on the Denver Film Society website starting Wednesday Nov. 2 with:
Like Crazy. Drake Doremus fashions the heartbreaking tale—already dubbed the “Love Story for a new generation”—of a British college student and an American classmate whose passionate love affair is put to the test when she violates her visa and gets deported. …
And about two hundred fifty other movies as well. Have fun!
