Film Festival adds screenings to second-week schedule
DENVER – November 10, 2010 – The 33rd Starz Denver Film Festival (SDFF) announces additional screenings of some of its top ticket-yielding films, scheduled for the second week of the Festival.
“With more than 50 sold-out screenings and nearly 20,000 film-goers in attendance during the first week alone, we hope these additional screenings will bring out as enthusiastic of a crowd during the second half of the Festival,” said SDFF Executive Director, Tom Botelho. “The need to add to our program further demonstrates the growing support we continue to receive from the community each year, and for this, we have our patrons, guests and sponsors to thank.”
SDFF33 will present the following, new screenings during the second half of the Festival:
Thursday, November 11 – 9pm, Starz FilmCenter
In his long-awaited, emotionally-charged second feature, University of Colorado graduate Derek Cianfrance, examines the disintegration of a family, as a boozy furniture mover Dean (Ryan Gosling) and discontented nurse Cindy (Michelle Williams) attempt to rekindle their young passion and save a rocky marriage, complicated by the presence of their young daughter.
We Are the Sea
Sunday, November 14 – 7:15pm, Starz FilmCenter
