Today the Denver Film Society, which produces the annual Denver Film Festival, announced dates and ticket packages for this year’s event. The 40th Denver Film Festival will run November 1-12. This year’s shindig, which typically draws around 55,000 movie aficionados, will present over 200 films from local and national film makers. There will also be panels, workshops, awards and tributes.
The full 12 day festival program will be announced Monday, October 9. Last year’s opening feature was “La La Land.” The film earned actress Emma Stone and director Damien Chazelle, who both attended the Denver Film Festival, Academy Awards earlier this year.
“Having one of the older and more established regional film festivals in the U.S. is more a testament to the amazing film loving community of Denver than it is to any one thing we’ve done as an organization,” says Festival Director, Britta Erickson. “The Denver Film Society prides itself on continuing the 40-year legacy of the organization by putting the best of cinema on screen every year, and this year is no exception. From the high-caliber of films, to the amazing special guests, the 40th Denver Film Festival may prove to be the best one yet and a true sign that the demand for quality film entertainment isn’t going away, here in the Mile High City, any time soon.”
