Starry nights

Dear Editor:

On behalf of Aspen Film and our Reel People membership, I would like to express our sincere appreciation to everyone who supported our two most recent fundraising events – our second annual Oscar party and a solo concert by acclaimed singer-songwriter Randy Newman.

We would also like especially to thank Aspen Magazine, Stella Artois, Effen Vodka, and 42 Degrees South and Frogmore Creek Wines for their support of the Oscar party.

Randy Newman’s cousin, Deborah Newman-Sharpe, who has served on the Aspen Film board of directors, generously brought this noted artist to Aspen. The performance was fabulous, with so many fans enjoying Randy’s special brand of music. Thank you, Randy, for coming to Aspen right after your recent Academy Award win. And, Deborah, you’re the greatest!

Next up for Aspen Film is our world-renowned Shortsfest, April 5-10, at the Wheeler Opera House and the Crystal Theatre in Carbondale. The festival will feature more than 80 short films from around the globe, including comedy, animation, drama, and documentary. Tickets are on sale now at the Wheeler and at American National Bank in Carbondale. Hope to see you there!

Robyn Myler

Executive director, Aspen Film
