31st Starz Denver Film Festival begins this week

This week marks the beginning of the 31st Starz Denver Film Festival, and portroids.com will be there to capture it all. Or at least some of it. I hope it will be the parts you, the reader and portroid-admirer, will appreciate. I do it for you (and me (mostly me)).

If you live in Denver, or plan to be here over the next few weeks, go to denverfilm.org and buy your tickets for some of the great films the festival is screening this year. You pretty much cannot go wrong with any choice. I've screened a couple of the films so far and they are excellent. I'm not going to tell you what they are because I want you to make your own choices. It will help you grow as a person.

I've attended the festival for the past few years and have been lucky enough to meet and photograph many attendees. This year, I will be involved in a more official capacity, so hope my trend of providing a visual experience to the world via web will be that much more fulfilling.

Here are the portroids I have taken from the previous years (if you're interested):

2007 30th Starz Denver Film Festival


Jason Reitman and AnnaSophia Robb at the Juno screening


2006 29th Starz Denver Film Festival

David Strathairn and Andrew Walker at the Steel Toes screening


2005 28th Starz Denver Film Festival

Ang Lee and Annie Proulx at the Brokeback Mountain screening


Philip Baker Hall at the Duck screening


Matt Mulhern at the screening of his film Duane Hopwood


2004 27th Starz Denver Film Festival

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick at the after party after Kevin won the Cassavetes Award


Soleil Moon Frye at the screening of her documentary Sonny Boy


Morgan Freeman at the screening of the documentary Blues Divas



This year promises to be awesome (if you believe promises (which I do)). So, I'll see you all this Thursday, November 13, 2008, at the red carpet for the Opening Night film The Brothers Bloom. I'll be the guy with the Polaroid camera.
