Looking for a sneak peek at some likely Academy Award candidates?

Then the Starz Denver Film Festival, which has previously featured films such as "Brokeback Mountain," "Black Swan" and "Silver Linings Playbook" before wide release, will be right up your alley.

The festival, which is in its 36th year, is a 12-day event that includes international and independent films, industry panels and workshops.

The festival opens Wednesday with "Labor Day," directed by Jason Reitman and starring Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet. "At Middleton," which co-stars Vera Farmiga, will close the festival on Nov. 16.

Red carpet presentations will take place at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, 1101 13th St. Special presentation screenings are held at various locations, including the Wolf Theatre at the Jewish Community Center Denver, 350 S. Dahlia St. Other screenings can be found at the Sie FilmCenter, 2510 E Colfax Ave., and UA Denver Pavilions Stadium 15, 500 16th Street Mall, Suite 310.

The Starz Denver Film Festival will offer nearly 200 films. Colorado will be well represented.

"This year's 'Spotlight on Colorado' is perhaps the strongest ever assembled," said artistic director Brit Withey.
