Starz Denver Film Festival

November 2 – 14, 2011

What’s It All About?

The potential of cinema to transform as well as reflect society in all its diversity is what the Denver Film Society (DFS) is all about. Since 1978, the DFS has worked to promote the medium as both an art form and a civic forum.It is the only non-profit organisation in Colorado dedicated to engaging both its members and the general public in a lifelong relationship with film culture. The twin pillars it has built are the award-winning Starz Denver Film Festival (SDFF), now in its 34th year, and the Starz FilmCenter. This year, the SDFF will debut a record number of films representing over 47 countries.

Focus On South Korean Cinema:

Each year, the festival shines the spotlight on one particular country to illuminate its cinematic treasures. Though still a stranger to multiplexes and only an occasional visitor to art houses, South Korean cinema is a staple at film festivals around the world. And although what is screened in the US leans toward the outrageous (The Host; The Good, The Bad, The Weird; I Saw the Devil), the industry is wildly diverse.
