It is no surprise that a lot of major events have been moving to online platforms due to the pandemic. With online streaming becoming so popular, this transition for the Denver Film Festival has been an easy one. Historically, the festival drew tens of thousands of cinephiles to more than 100 screenings in urban Denver and that number will only rise with the screenings not being bound by a physical location. Though the event has already begun, the festival will continue to run until November 8th—so, don't panic. There's still time to join in on the fun!
Your Last Chance To Watch
If you are looking to get in on the last week of the 43rd annual Denver Film Festival you can access their digital platform via denverfilm.org. You can sign up on the website or by downloading the Denver Film app for Roku TV or Apple TV. Ticket prices for this event will vary depending on how you want to watch. If you're starting late, then you'll want to skip the all-access pass and go for one of the other packages. There were 4, $45 packages and 10, $95 packages at the beginning of the festival. Though many of the films have restricted viewing times that have already passed, there are some that you can still watch.
Like the film The Adoration, which is about the political issue involving a current legal loophole allowing employers to pay people with Down Syndrome less than minimum wage. Or the feature film Charlatan, which was inspired by the true story of herbalist Jan Mikolasek, who dedicated his life to caring for the sick in spite of the immense obstacles he faced in his private and public life. There are also many short films that you can still watch like Broken Bells. In this short film, Ralph, a lonely kid in a forgotten town, has a miraculous gift. He can see beauty manifested through beams of light permeating from people who are ignored and seemingly invisible, just like him.
