Film: Pablo Kjolseth's IFS spring calendar picks

Deep in the midst of the digital age, International Film Series programmer Pablo Kjolseth makes no bones about his love of celluloid, the analog of film, especially, but not necessarily, in black and white. Because of that, the University of Colorado's IFS is arguably the region's last true vestige of repertory cinema, the kind that died twenty years ago or so with the rise of home video. IFS's spring calendar kicked off on Wednesday with the last film in the stunning Swedish Stieg Larsson trilogy, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest; tonight and tomorrow, you can still catch an IFS Sundance Shorts program. Great starting-off points, to be sure, but according to Pablo's TCM blog, here's where his heart really lies:
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.
