Dear Festival Guest:


Welcome back to the Starz Denver Film Festival, celebrated by the Denver Film Society for the 33rd time—and for the 13th time by us here at Starz. We are delighted with the recent three-year extension of our sponsorship for this great event and with the selection of the new Denver Film Center/Colfax facility as the future home of the festival.


As usual, the Denver Film Society has lined up a terrific as- sortment of must-see films and celebrity talent for the festival, starting with the Opening Night film Rabbit Hole, with director John Cameron Mitchell and costar Aaron Eckhart appear- ing in person. Academy Award–winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) is on hand to receive the Mayor’s Career Achievement Award; his new release 127 Hours will screen on Big Night, accompanied by the hero that inspired the film, Aron Ralston. Finally, the legendary movie and TV star Elliott Gould is here to receive the distinguished John Cassavetes Award at a special 40th anniversary screening of M*A*S*H.


Anchor Bay Entertainment, sister company to Starz Entertain- ment, has two critically acclaimed films in this year’s festival through its Anchor Bay Films division; the thriller A Horrible Way to Die and the romantic comedy happythankyoumoreplease, winner of the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival.


The Starz Denver Film Festival continues to grow in prominence and acclaim, and we proudly celebrate our association with this great cultural event. I encourage you to enjoy the diversity of film programming and wealth of creative talent on display at this year’s festival and join me in saluting those that make it happen.


Kind regards,


WILLIAM D. MYERS President and COO Starz Entertainment, LLC


Welcome:


I am honored to welcome you to the 33nd Starz Denver Film Festival. As the organization behind one of the longest-running and most respected film festivals in the nation, the Denver Film Society invites directors, actors and producers from around the globe to exhibit their work and immerse themselves in our com- munity each year. It is through the passion of Executive Director Tom Botelho, Festival Director Britta Erickson, Artistic Director Brit Withey and DFS founder Ron Henderson that this immense undertaking is so successful. Their love of film and of the DFS, coupled with Denver’s hospitality, makes the Starz Denver Film Festival a must-attend event for filmmakers all over the world.


Although the Starz Denver Film Festival is the epitome of the Denver Film Society’s vision for cultivating community and trans- forming lives through film, it is only one of many initiatives. Spe- cifically, the DFS presents two other marquee events annually, Party with Oscar® and Film on the Rocks. Both continue to evolve and garner record attendances. In addition, through our partnership with Starz and the University of Colorado–Denver’s College of Arts & Media, DFS has long had a year-round home at the Starz FilmCenter to showcase programs that would not otherwise be seen in the region. Some of these include screen- ings by Colorado-based professional and student filmmakers; mini–film festivals focusing on diverse communities; spotlights on topics such as design and dance; monthly film programs like WOMEN + FILM and The Watching Hour; and ongoing film pro- grams for African-American, Asian-American and youth audienc- es. We are all very fortunate to have one of the few film societies anywhere that provides such cinematic depth and breadth.


Finally, on behalf of the entire board and the DFS staff, I would especially like to thank our corporate partners, festival spon- sors, individual patrons, members and loyal volunteers for their fervent and continued support of the DFS. Through your gen- erosity, the DFS has ventured to open our new facility, Denver FilmCenter/Colfax. This move will help to secure the future of our organization. Please join us at all of our venues during the festival and at our new home in the years to come.


Sincerely,


DAVID S. CHARMATZ Chair, Board of Directors
