Perfectly scheduled during the breathtaking fall season, the Aspen Filmfest is intended to satisfy everyone’s visual taste buds. Founded in 1979 by Ellen Kohner Hunt, the Aspen Filmfest is an annual short film festival held in Aspen, Colorado. The organization has been creating extraordinary experiences for both the cinephile and casual moviegoers of all tastes and ages.
Going by the catchphrase “Independent By Nature”, it aims to enlighten, enrich, educate and entertain through film. It’s a noncompetitive, non-profit festival presenting a big-screen celebration of award-winning narrative and documentary features, and a lively mix of acclaimed independent filmmakers from around the world.
The coveted event is mainly funded mainly thru ticket sales, membership programs, and just the plain generosity of individual contributors. This year’s lineup features 15 films and is held from Tuesday through Sunday, September 27- October 2, 2022 at The Wheeler Opera House, Crystal Theatre and Isis Theatre.
Various tickets and passes are available to the general public and Aspen Film Members, except for the VIP and Priority Pass which are only for Aspen Film Members.
