100 Colorado Creatives: Brit Withey

#35: Brit Withey

As artistic director of the Denver Film Society, Brit Withey is the man behind the curtain pulling all levers when it comes to bringing innovative, rare and artful film to the Sie FilmCenter for special screenings throughout the year. But at the annual Starz Denver Film Festival, which opens November 6 for a run through November 17 (visit the website for a complete schedule and ticket information), he also gives a face to the DFS as he meets the public and all of the fest's filmmakers and movie glitterati. On the eve of SDFF's opening night, we asked Withey to share his thoughts on the cinema and the local arts scene; Withey's 100CC questionnaire follows.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
