BOULDER COMMUNITY MEDIA
There are plenty of new features at the 6th Annual Boulder International Film Festival. Robin Beeck, Executive Director of BIFF, talks about three exciting additions to this year’s program.
BIFF is excited to host this panel discussion with the Governor’s Office of Film, Television & Media and the Boulder Convention and Visitor Bureau. At the St. Julien, leaders in the field of animation and gaming will consider potential collaboration and the industry’s future as well as Colorado’s role as a major player in the years to come. This exciting conversation will be followed by a networking reception. The admission fee includes a screening of panelist and Oscar-nominated producer, Don Hahn’s, new documentary, Waking Sleeping Beauty, at the First United Methodist Church. You don’t want to miss this opportunity. Tickets are available at the Boulder Theater box office for $35.
Speaking of the Church
This year, The First United Methodist Church has been added as one of the screening venues for BIFF. This is an exciting addition for festival organizers because the Church is just a few short blocks from the Boulder Theater, allowing attendees a greater opportunity to see more films.
BIFF has a long tradition of screening documentaries that promote social change, often leaving audience members to ask, “What can I do to help?” This year, BIFF launched a new website that provides a channel to do just that. Look for films with the new Call2Action logo and then go to biff1.com/call-to-action for more details on how you can help with the causes depicted in many of this year’s documentaries.
