“It’s a unique opportunity for fans to meet actual filmmakers, to come with them to the after-parties, to hang out with them,” he explains. “It’s a good networking event for not just film fans and film directors, but actors and everybody that wants to be in the industry.”
The festival kicks off with a party at 6 p.m. at the Mayan Theatre, 110 Broadway. A screening of Next to My Brother, an Austrian film about twins raised to act as one person, follows. Tomorrow at 9 p.m., the locally made Atom the Amazing Zombie Killer makes its Denver premiere at Su Teatro, 721 Sante Fe Drive, with cast and crew on hand. A selection of documentaries and shorts rounds out the program. Tickets are $30 for the whole fest, or $10 a screening.
