October 1-7, 2012

Aspen’s Filmfest showcases a range of films, including international documentaries, or as they refer to them, “true stories.” Most of the films at Filmfest are regional debuts, providing a venue for Colorado fans to catch a film they might otherwise not be able to see. Most screenings take place at the beautiful Wheeler Opera House in Aspen. The festival is intimate in scale and offers unique presentations, special events and tributes to distinguished artists and rising talent. Past honorees include such luminaries as Julie Christie, Harrison Ford, Rob Reiner, Michael Douglas, Anjelica Huston, William H. Macy and this year’s rising talent, Crazy Love‘s Anton Yelchin.

When to submit: By early January
