The lineup for the 35th Starz Denver Film Festival, which runs November 1-11, was announced this morning, a slate that includes more than 225 films -- sixteen of them local -- from forty countries.
But this country will take special importance since the festival runs at the same time as the presidential election -- so the fest is using the slogan, "Vote Film."
The festival opens November 1 with a Red Carpet Presentation of A Late Quartet, directed by Yaron Zilberman and starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Mark Ivanir, Catherine Keener, and Christopher Walken. Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut, Quartet, takes the stage on November 3, while David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook will will close the fest on November 10.
Other special presentations include: Any Day Now, Art of Conflict, Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie, The Fitzgerald Family Christmas, Free Samples, Grassroots, Hyde Park on Hudson, Jayne Mansfield's Car, The Life and Times of Paul the Psychic Octopus, The Sapphires, Shadow Dancer, and Stand Up Guys.
Individual tickets go on sale to Denver Film Society Members on Wednesday, October 17 and to the general public on Friday, October 19. Tickets are available for purchase online at denverfilm.org or at two box office locations.
