THURSDAY, JULY 28, 2016 – 5:00PM

Join us for our annual Behind the Screen event at the SIE FilmCenter in partnership with the Denver Film Society.

Behind the Screen celebrates the state’s thriving film industry with a private screening of a film with subject matter ties to Colorado, followed by Q&A with the director, producer and other creators. This event promotes the economic impact of the arts and film industry in Colorado and underscores QF’s tradition of bringing together the state’s business, public service and community leaders. It is also fun—a casual summer evening spent with your spouse or loved one celebrating our state’s emerging cultural community with other leaders who are making a difference in our community.

This year’s Behind the Screen will present Transpecos, winner of the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at SXSW 2016:

For three United States Border Patrol agents working a remote desert checkpoint, the contents of one car will reveal an insidious plot within their own ranks. The next 24 hours will take them on a treacherous journey onto the world of the border that could cost them their lives. A 2016 American thriller film directed by Greg Kwedar, and written by Kwedar and Clint Bentley. The film stars Johnny Simmons, Gabriel Luna, and Clifton Collins, Jr.

Today's Quarterly Forum is Tomorrow's Civico.

Exciting new changes are coming soon!

In 1999, Quarterly Forum (QF) was founded to provide a place for emerging executives to dream more, learn more, do more and become more while coordinating civic activities amongst its members.

Today, our mission is to educate, inspire and connect the next generation of community leaders from the public, private and social sectors who together will build new levels of leadership capacity for future generations.

And in 2019, big changes are coming. While our mission will remain the same, the future of the organization is more exciting than ever. Check back soon for updates and announcements.
