Enjoy everything you love about the Denver Film Festival from the comfort of your own home!

The Denver Film Festival is one of those fall events we look forward to every year. This year, COVID-19 has canceled or changed many events that mark fall in Colorado, and the Denver Film Festival is one of those events. It's been recently announced that the festival will be going 100 percent online.

Normally, the festival brings in about 50,000 attendees to screen over 250 films and is a premier event that film lovers across the country come to enjoy. The festival is set for October 22 through November 8.

It promises to be a fun virtual event, with “new, carefully selected films from around the world, exclusive filmmaker conversations, and bonus content.” The film lineup has yet to be announced, however, early-bird tickets can be purchased online now. Check out the festival website for more information.

To participate, guests will need to purchase a pass and create an account on the festival’s virtual hub, then follow the directions to connect to a television. There are three options to watch; the Roku TV app, the AppleTV app, and “Cast” (or “Airplay”), which are apps that allow movies to be cast from a mobile device or laptop to a TV set. 

Ticket options: 

  • All-access virtual pass- $225 access to everything the festival has to offer. 
  • 10-ticket pack- $95, pick ten of your favorite flicks.
  • 4-ticket pack- $45-pick four of your favorite films.

Please note that prices will go up on September 25.

Head over to the festival website for more information. Denver Film makes its year-round home at the Sie FilmCenter located at 2510 East Colfax Avenue. In normal times, the Sie FilmCenter has a weekly calendar of first-run exclusives and arthouse revival films. The theater has been closed to the public since the pandemic started, but it is open for private event rentals.
