In the Spotlight today is the 41st Denver Film Festival(DFF), a premier film event and one of the longest running and established film festivals in the US. DFF is known for presenting Academy Award and Independent Spirit Award-winning films, along with hosting some of the world’s leading filmmakers, producers, and actors.

The gorgeous Rocky Mountain backdrop is an awe-inspiring environment for filmmakers during this twelve-day event. Named byMovieMaker Magazineas one of the "50 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee" and one of the "25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World," DFF promotes cross-generational dialogue among the big-screen talents of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Last year DFF presented more than 200 titles among local, national and international independent films, industry panels, workshops, achievement awards and tributes, as well as a focus on Danish Cinema.

Director Rob Christopher (Pause of the Clock) shares his experience, "Obliging and exceedingly professional staff, enthusiastic volunteers, top-notch screening facilities, and moviegoers who love film: it all added up to the best possible festival launch for my film. And what's more I met some cool fellow filmmakers, took in some great work, and had a ton of fun. For both filmmakers and filmgoers, DFF is exactly what a festival should be." Accepted filmmakers will be provided with transportation and lodging, and will have full access to multiple red carpet events, after-parties, and networking events throughout the run of the festival. Thanks to multiple lounges, receptions, parties, and Henderson's Lounge at the Sie FilmCenter, the party almost never ends at DFF.
