Pro Tip: 39th Denver Film Festival Ticket Packages


Alex Karpovsky (Ray!) will be attending this year’s fest

Perhaps you’ve been hearing the buzz already…the 39th Denver Film Festival is coming to town, taking place on Wednesday, November 2 – Sunday, November 13, 2016. Star-studded red carpet films have been announced, award finalists have been revealed, and the full 12-day festival program will be released on Monday, October 10, 2016.

So now what?

Well, now is the time to take advantage of the ticketing deals! The Denver Film Society has done a great job this year of offering a variety of ticket packages for the fest. Attendees can choose from basic discounted tickets to red carpet presentations, to packages that include red carpet movies, parking, plus dinner at a Larimer Square restaurant. Really, there is something for everyone. However, interested parties should act fast – several of the discounted packages are only available until Monday, October 10, 2016.
