Aspen Film announces summer event lineup
Aspen Film is partnering with a host of Aspen-area organizations to bring a variety of film programming to the community for its second “Summer of Cinema.” The summer events will be the lead-up to the 40th anniversary of the organization and Aspen Film’s Filmfest from Sept. 23 to 29.
The lineup includes partnerships with the Aspen Music Festival and School, Metropolitan Theatres and the Aspen Art Museum along with a new “Movies Under the Stars” series presented in collaboration with The Collective at Snowmass Base Village and the return of the New Views documentary series with the Aspen Institute.
“We have a jam-packed summer of great cinema that definitely offers something for everyone,” Aspen film director Susan Wrubel said in an announcement. “From brand new releases to old classics, we hope our audiences enjoy the films as much as we enjoyed selecting these with our partner organizations.”
The New Views events will be announced at a later date. The rest of the lineup:
