Emma Stone interviewed by YFW students

Founded in 1978 by a group of filmmakers, educators and film lovers, The Denver Film Society’s mission is to develop opportunities for diverse audiences to discover film through creative, thought-provoking experiences.

Film-based activities, events, and educational programs are offered year-round and include the award-winning Denver Film Festival, Film on the Rocks, and several mini-festivals that engage diverse audiences.

The support of Bonfils-Stanton Foundation allows Denver Film Society to broaden and deepen the experiential aspects of the mini-festivals, which are held throughout the year. Thought-provoking films, panels, lectures and events complement each festival’s theme.
