Today's bonus featured event: Ink spills onscreen at the Starz FilmCenter

There might be something familiar about the all-local cast and recognizable backdrops in Ink, a new independent feature by Denver filmmaker Jamin Winans of Double Edge Films, which premieres today at the Starz FilmCenter. But from that point on, the film diverges into a fantastical world. The key characters -- a father, John, and his eight-year-old daughter, Emma -- live through concurrent struggles and fight demons, both inner and literal, after a black-robed kidnapper-for-hire named Ink grabs her in the night and spirits her away into a not-too-friendly dreamscape peopled by evil incubi. Winans, who already won kudos locally and on the festival circuit for his last feature, 11:59, calls it more of a creative thriller than a creepshow, but you'll have a good time forming your own opinion.

Ink bows today for a two-week run, with showings at 4:30, 7 and 9:45 p.m. at Starz, in the Auraria campus' Tivoli Student Union. Better yet, today's screenings -- indeed, all of them through the weekend -- feature a post-film Q&A session with Winans. Admission is $7 to $9.50. Get more information at the Starz website, the the Double Edge site or 303-595-3456.
