Working within a scene based around a long-running monthly showcase of Colorado-made work called the Emerging Filmmakers Project, these moviemakers branched off to form their own yearly fest, during which women from all aspects of the process — screen-writers, editors, directors, cinematographers and actors — are highlighted.
The two-night event will offer a curated lineup of 25 films, a mix of submissions as well as work selected from the EFP. Feature-length films like documentary Women Warriors — A Vision of Valor will screen alongside a collection of shorts and animations made for kids featuring local child actors.
The 2014 Colorado Independent Women of Film kicks off at the Bug Theatre, 3654 Navajo Street, at 7 p.m.; Q&As with the filmmakers will follow. Screenings resume tomorrow at 5 p.m. at the Bug. Tickets are $10 a block or $15 a day; to get yours, along with a full list of featured films and shorts, visit ciwfdenver.com.
