New film festivals seem to be popping up every year in the Mile High City. Not only was 2010 the inaugural year of the Mile High Horror Film Festival, but it also saw the first ever Film Festival of Colorado. From the website:
The Film Festival of Colorado (TFFOC) is a gift to the people of Colorado. Its mission is to provide an inclusive film event that features the world-class talents of the Colorado film industry while acknowledging good filmmaking wherever it originates. It also encourages and recognizes emerging young filmmakers.
From June 23-26, the second annual Film Festival of Colorado will take over the Tivoli Student Union for four days of over fifty films from primarily Colorado filmmakers. Featuring the requisite features, shorts and documentaries, the Film Festival of Colorado also features student films, comedy sketches, animations, music videos, and webisodes. This year sees the addition of two new categories: Sci-Fi/Horror and Environment/Conservation.
This year will feature the premiere of the short film “One for the Road.” Written and directed by award-winning Irish filmmaker Paul Ward, “One for the Road” is an adaptation of the Stephen King short story, originally found in the “Night Shift” anthology. It was produced by Tim Sullivan, who was responsible for the film “2001 Maniacs,” and stars Reggie Bannister, Danny O’Connor, Audrey Walters, Drew Walters, and Karen Andrews.
More information can be found at their official website, though it might take some searching to find anything particularly useful. As far as I could see there is no information concerning tickets, though there is a contact form, and the official list of selections, which was supposed to be released on May 20th, has yet to appear on the site.
