Greetings:


On behalf of the people of the State of Colorado, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Starz Denver Film Festival. The 2010 Starz Denver Film Festival is celebrating its 33rd anniver- sary and will host more than 150 film artists from around the world.


Colorado has had a rich heritage in film since the late 1800s— and the Starz Denver Film Festival is an important part of that history. This year, the Opening Night film, Rabbit Hole, is direct- ed by former Colorado Springs resident John Cameron Mitchell. We are proud of other Coloradans such as Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance, who is from Littleton and attended the University of Colorado–Boulder, and longtime resident Aron Ralston, on whose true story—captured in the memoir Between a Rock and a Hard Place—Big Night’s 127 Hours is based. And there are a record eight feature-length films and many shorts that were produced locally.


In 33 years, the festival has screened over 4,000 films for Denver audiences—many of which might never have otherwise played in Colorado. This year’s event will attract more than 50,000 cinephiles to downtown Denver; it is an incredible oppor- tunity to enjoy worldwide culture through the art of film.


It is with great pride that I announce the launch of Colorado Creative Industries, a new governmental division that will be an integral part of Colorado’s future. It includes the Office of Film, Television, & Media, a sponsor of the festival’s Spotlight on Colorado.


Welcome once again to this wonderful festival! Enjoy the films and your stay in Colorado.


Sincerely,


BILL RITTER, JR. Governor of Colorado


Greetings:


On behalf of the City and County of Denver, welcome to the Mile High City and the 33rd Starz Denver Film Festival, one of Denver’s most anticipated annual cultural events and a highlight of Denver Arts Week.


We are delighted that the Opening Night, Big Night and Clos- ing Night films will be presented at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House—or The Ellie, as it is affectionately known locally. We are also delighted that the Denver Film Society will be relocating its permanent home to the Lowenstein CulturePlex, which is quickly becoming a hot spot, and look forward to the Grand Opening of the new Denver FilmCenter/Colfax on the second evening of the festival, when two new films will screen: Casino Jack, directed by my very own cousin, the talented George Hickenlooper, and Morning, directed by Leland Orser.


It is an incredible honor to present the 2010 Mayor’s Career Achievement Award to the Academy Award–winning director/ producer Danny Boyle, who brings to this year’s festival his lat- est achievement, 127 Hours, about local mountain climber Aron Ralston’s epic struggle to save himself after a climbing accident in Utah. Boyle’s critically acclaimed Slumdog Millionaire—pre- sented during Big Night at the festival two years ago—went on to win eight Oscars, including Best Director. Prior to the sweep, the esteemed English director was best known for such cult favorites as Trainspotting (1996), Shallow Grave (1994) and 28 Days Later (2002).To add to his accomplishments, it was an- nounced this past summer that he will be the artistic director for the 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony.


The Starz Denver Film Festival annually presents an oppor- tunity for us to showcase our city as we welcome members of the film industry from around the world—and from right here in Colorado: more than a dozen films in the program were locally produced, including a record eight feature-length films. We look forward to hosting future projects on location.


We are grateful to the Denver Film Society, Starz Entertain- ment, the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) and all the festival’s volunteers and donors for making this year’s event possible. We wish the Denver Film Society continued success.


Sincerely, 8


JOHN W. HICKENLOOPER Mayor, City and County of Denver
