Many films in the 2014 lineup — like the documentaries Bee People, Claw and Penny & Red — have strong Colorado connections, with both subjects and filmmakers hailing from the state.
“We have a great mix of films this year,” notes Tammy Brislin, festival founder and producer. “We’ve got a few more documentaries than usual. I think it is so important to have stories that are representative of international and local issues right here in the U.S.”
Panel discussions, Q&As with actors and filmmakers, and the Young Filmmakers Workshop are all part of this year’s festival, which kicks off tonight with the documentary Sepideh at 7 p.m., followed by a post-screening Skype chat with director Berit Madsen. Women + Film runs through March 23 at the Sie FilmCenter, 2510 East Colfax Avenue; tickets are $12 to $35. For a full schedule of events, as well as information and tickets, visit denverfilm.org.
