Festival upgrades for 2014 include the introduction of digital projectors and the festival's first-ever live-streaming event: a town-hall discussion about international gay rights with the director of God Loves Uganda. The fest will also screen six Oscar-nominated films, four films that come directly from Sundance, and plenty of others that fit in with the festival's motto of good storytelling, Beeck says.
Kicking off tonight with a red-carpet gala and screening of John Turturro's Fading Gigolo at the Boulder Theater, 2032 14th Street, at 8 p.m. (doors at 7:30 p.m.), the tenth annual festival will continue through Sunday with films, the humanitarian Call to Action program, a free youth pavilion, and tons of panels and out-of-town guests at locations all over Boulder.
