Snow porn! This month's must-see ski and snowboard movie premieres

Roll out the white carpet: Tomorrow night's world premiere of After Dark from Denver-based Level 1 Productions kicks off a busy Fall film schedule that serves as a reminder of just how awesome it is to live in Colorado, where -- for a few months, anyway -- we get the full Hollywood treatment from the ski and snowboard industry. Read on for snow porn trailers galore and a comprehensive guide to all of September's premiere parties in Denver, Boulder and Aspen. Buy your tickets ASAP: Every event on this list is likely to sell out.

September 9: The world premiere of After Dark from Denver-based Level 1 Productions, 8 p.m. at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, 2637 Welton Street -- with performances by DJ Harvitronix, Knocean and Ecto Cooler -- just might be the most raging party of the year. Advance tickets are $15, or splurge for the $39.95 package deal and get a T-shirt and DVD or BluRay disc in the bargain.

SOLITAIRE: A Backcountry Skiing, Snowboarding, and Telemark Film from Sweetgrass Productions on Vimeo.

September 15: The world premiere of Solitaire, from Boulder-based Sweetgrass Productions at 7 p.m. at Gothic Theatre, heads to points South, including Argentina, Peru and Chile, for backcountry ski, tele and snowboard adventures in otherworldly terrain (stay tuned for our full interview with director Nick Waggoner next week).

Burton "Standing Sideways!" teaser from Pleasure Snowboard Magazine on Vimeo.

September 15: Burton's touring film Standing Sideways gets its Colorado premiere at 8 p.m. at the Ogden Theatre. Tickets are $10-$15. Get there early for an autograph session featuring heavy hitters Jussi Oksanen, Mark Sollors, Keegan Valaika, Jeremy Jones, Ethan Deiss, Mikey Rencz, Danny Davis, Mark McMorriss and Kazu Kokubo.

STANDARD FILMS TB20 OFFICIAL TEASER from Standard Films on Vimeo.

September 16: The world premiere of TB:20, the 20th anniversary installment of Standard Films' Totally Board series, is the headliner at the 2nd annual Snowboard on the Rocks film festival, which promises to be the biggest snowboard movie anywhere and also includes the local premieres of Shoot the Moon from Videograss and Marc Frank Montoya's Familia 2, plus performances by Michal Menert, Doomtree and RJD2. Better yet, the $25 ticket doubles as a free lift ticket to Echo Mountain and comes with buy one/get one deals at Copper Mountain, Woodward at Copper and SolVista, $10 off at Silverton Mountain and a free subscription to TransWorld Snowboarding. Afterward, follow the traffic from Morrison straight to the Bluebird Theater for the local premiere of Videograss' Retrospect ($5-$10) at 11:30 p.m.

September 17: The Boulder Theater hosts the world premiere of Attack of La Niña: The Bitch is Back, from Crested Butte-based Matchstick Productions, with an all-ages screening at 7 p.m. and a 21+ encore at 9:30 p.m. The $18.50 ticket comes with a 50-percent-off coupon for a lift ticket at Crested Butte Mountain Resort, MSP's home mountain. Sold out? MSP premieres will do that to you; try the Denver screening at the Gothic Theater at 7 p.m. on September 22 as a backup.

September 23: Denver-based Never Summer Industries is celebrating its 20th anniversary this season, so don't miss the world premiere of Shred 'Em All, the second full-length Never Summer team video, at 7 p.m. at the Summit Music Hall, 1902 Blake Street, with a performance by musical guest It Should Have Been Lars. Tickets are $10. For more on the flick, check out the Show + Tell interview with director Micah Cook.

Brain Farm - The Art of Flight Trailer from Brain Farm on Vimeo.

September 27: Snow porn at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House?

The last time the Brain Farm crew was at Ellie Caulkins, with their 2008 film That's It, That's All, they nearly brought down the house.
