Closing night features a bit of Denver Film Society nostalgia, with a screening of Thirteen Conversations About One Thing, the first film shown in 2002 at the opening of the Starz FilmCenter at Auraria.
Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling star in Melancholia, a wedding story turned doomsday drama from Lars von Trier.
The Artist, from director Michel Hazanavicius, could be the most unique bit of film at this year's fest: It's a modern silent movie, filmed in black-and-white and set in Hollywood, circa 1927, at the dawn of the talkies.
Rest assured, there is much more. Peruse the schedule now; buy tickets later at the Denver FilmCenter box office.
