The Denver Film Festival returns this fall, bringing with it dozens of documentaries, feature films, shorts and even some virtual reality experiences to enjoy.
The 44th annual event, which runs Nov. 3-14, released its schedule Tuesday, and will offer a mix of in-person screenings as well as virtual screenings that movie buffs can watch from home in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Those looking to attend in person must show proof they are fully vaccinated against the virus, according to organizers.
The festival opens on Nov. 3 with a screening of “Spencer”, the much-talked-about film starring Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana as she navigates a holiday party at the Royal Family’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk. The 8 p.m. screening at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House will be preceded by a red carpet and followed by a kickoff party at the McNichols Civic Center Building.
Other noteworthy films include “King Richard” (Nov. 13 at 8 p.m. at Ellie Caulkins Opera House), in which Will Smith plays father and coach Richard Williams raising two tennis greats, Venus and Serena Williams; and “Parallel Mothers” (Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. at Maglione Theater), director Pedro Almodóvar’s Spanish-language film about two single, prospective mothers who meet in the hospital as they prepare to give birth and learn a few lessons from each other along the way. Penélope Cruz stars as one of the mothers.
