Starz Denver Film Fest Bows Nov. 6

Starz Denver Film Fest Bows Nov. 6

The Denver Film Festival’s 2013 slate highlights films by Jason Reitman, Alexander Payne, and Paolo Sorrentino.

The Denver Film Festival 2013 schedule is now available on the Denver Film website.  This year brings some great talent back to Denver.

SDFF 2013 will screen more than 250 features, shorts, music videos and student films, representing 44 countries, along with Denver Film Society’s signature programs such as Cinema Q, Reel Social Club and Women + Film.  This year, SDFF shines a spotlight on cinema from the Netherlands, known for its wildly diverse range of cinematic treasures. Fourteen Dutch films are included in the Festival line-up.

We are particularly looking forward to the screening of Nebraska by Alexander Payne (The Descendants, About Schmidt), and Labor Day by Jason Reitman (Up In the Air, Juno, Thank You for Smoking).

Also make sure to check out Paolo Sorrentino’s La Grande Bellezza, which our own Patrick Hackett saw at the The Cannes Film Festival this last May.  In his own words: “Sorrentino creates a true love poem to Rome– and is as good as Fellini’s Roma.  It is not to be missed.”

Tickets go on sale for DFS members on the 23rd and to the general public on the 25th.   We urge you to get your tickets early, as each of these films will sell out.




And we can’t help but mention that An American Terror, produced by Jim Brennan and directed by Haylar Garcia and crewed up with likes of our own Patrick Hackett (Production Manager) and Anton Fresco (Director of Photography) will have its Colorado premiere at the Sie Center on Saturday, Nov. 9th at midnight.  It’s been cleaning up on the Horror Fest circuit internationally and is now coming back to the city where it was made.  We hope to see you there.
