I have very fond memories of watching indie films at the Starz FilmCenter in the Tivoli as well as attending “Film on the Rocks,” both of these are brought to the community by the Denver Film Society. It has recently come to my attention that the Denver Film Society, one of Colorado’s great non-profit arts organizations is struggling to keep the lights on.
Since 1978, the DFS has dedicated their organization to the exhibition of films by developing programs that includes year-round screenings, community outreach projects and special events. As with all art forms, the medium is ever changing and the DFF has found themselves behind the times. The film industry standard has transitioned from 35mm projectors into DCP projectors. In order for the DFS to continue showing films at the Sie FilmCenter, Film on the Rocks and the Denver Film Festival they must raise $150,000 by June 28. It would be a crime to this community to let the lights go dark on the DFS.
