2016 BEHIND THE SCREEN: A CELEBRATION OF FILM AND CULTURE
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.
