The Denver Film Society has just announced the dates for the 39th annual Denver Film Festival and is now taking film submissions for consideration, so you can start planning your November — and dreaming about making your work part of the fest.
The festival will run from Wednesday, November 2, through Sunday, November 13; during that span, the Sie FilmCenter and other to-be-announced venues will screen over 200 films from around the world — new shorts, features, classics and more. Over 175 filmmakers and other members of the industry will participate in the movie party, the best and biggest in the Mile High City every year.
The festival takes submissions from everywhere, but keeps its eyes open for homegrown talent to mix with the hits coming through the festival circuit and rare screenings of titles that otherwise might never be showcased in our region. If you want to submit, you can take advantage of the earlybird deadline now and save cash — pro tip: programmers HATE being asked for a submission fee waiver — as well have fresh eyeballs looking at your work.
