Nighttime Parties (Thursday-Saturday)

Evan Nix: "On Thursday night we're treating our filmmakers and comedians to late night bowling at Elitch Lanes. Friday night everyone is invited out to our after party at Forest Room 5. On Saturday we're hanging out late at The Oriental with a set by DJ Questionblock before we announce our award winners at midnight. All of these parties will be a great place to come out and talk to the filmmakers and performers and enjoy the festivities."

Ashley Barnhill at The Bug Theatre (Thursday, 9 p.m.)

"Ashley Barnhill is an up and coming comic from Austin, TX. Voted one of Huffington Post's 18 Funny Women You Should Be Following On Twitter."

Denver Comedy Block sponsored by Denver Open Media at the Oriental Theater (Friday, 7 p.m.)

"Denver Open Media is doing their first ever out-of-studio live broadcast of this all-Colorado comedian block. All of the comedians are up for "Best Local Comic" in addition to "Best of Fest" awards. The Best Local award winners receive a free Denver Open Media membership as well!"

"Foodie" by Aaron Rudelson at the Oriental Theater (Friday, 9 p.m.)

"This is a hilarious short film that might make you gag a little, if you're not too busy laughing."

"The Date" by Ben Simkins at the Oriental Theater (Friday, 9 p.m.)

"This short dark comedy is not only well directed and edited by an awesome local filmmaker, it stars two up and coming Denver-bred comics, Ben Roy and Rob Gleeson. Web comedies like this rarely get a chance to show on the big screen, and it's a whole different way to experience a story."
