It doesn’t get much better than free. And that’s exactly what you’re going to get Wednesday night, courtesy of Durango Film – An Independent Film Festival.
The festival, which kicks off with a party from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, and will run through March 6, is an annual event celebrating films and filmmakers from all over the world. Movie showings, panel discussions and other events are held at venues around Durango, and if you’ve never taken part in this festival, you should because it’s a great way to explore films that are a change of pace from the usual Hollywood blockbuster variety. You get a little bit of everything – from documentaries and shorts to kid’s flicks and everything in between.
Movies to be shown Wednesday night will be: Native “Lebowski” Program, featuring the films “Ronnie BoDean” and “Chasing the Light” at 6; “Superior” at 6:30 – the filmmaker will be in attendance for this narrative feature; the documentary feature “Mad Tiger” at 8:30; and Life, Death, Fantasy … and a Zombie Shorts Program at 9. All films will be shown at the Gaslight Theatre, 102 E. Fifth St.
Priority seating will be for the festival’s First-Tier pass holders.
