Denver International Film Festival

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!

      Alex, is that you?! Hi! You’re not in town, are you? Cuz that would be awesome.

      So, you really liked Like Crazy? Are you or anyone you know involved in production?

      And I even have a free ticket to the Mayan (except I have to go Mon-Thurs.) But I’ll def check out the movie.

      Nice to “see” you. 😉

    Hey it is me! I was just in town for a couple days for the opening of the movie at the film fest. My friends Ben and Drake wrote it and Drake directed it. Actually the project was a collaboration from a lot of friends and people who’ve been working together for a while. I was on it too in the camera dept.

    I’ll be back longer in December, good to “see” you too!
