Mountain Mayhem: Aspen Filmfest

06: Peggy Oxford and Hetta Heath at Harris Hall.

For 37 years, Aspen Film’s signature fall festival has celebrated and showcased the silver screen. As one of Colorado’s longest running festivals, Aspen Filmfest continues to bring filmmakers together with audiences for a weekend of movies, Q&A’s, discussion and dialogue. The festivities began with an opening reception on a glorious fall evening on Sept. 25, at Harris Hall, sponsored by The Aspen Times, Aspen Sojourner, Carne Humana Wine and Aspen Brewing Company. Guests had the opportunity to mingle with fellow filmgoers, as well as meet the organization’s new leaders — executive director John Thew and artistic director Maggie Mackay, kicking off the week-long series of award-winning features and documentaries and other special presentations.
