Hi all,

Was trying to screen "Stars in Shorts" this weekend, but it was pulled by the Denver Film Center's Horror Festival.

It will be playing next week, October 8 thru 11th, (Monday - Thursday), each day at 2:20, 4:40 and 7:20 at the Colfax Event Center - 2510 E. Colfax Ave.


I just wanted those interested to know about it. Here is a summary of the films:


From the presenters of the popular Academy Award Nominated Shorts program comes Stars in Shorts, a delightful new program featuring the world’s biggest actors—in their smallest roles yet!

  • Judi Dench is a neophyte in the complicated landscape of internet dating in “Friend Request Pending.”
  • Colin Firth is an unusually needy neighbor to Keira Knightley in the humorously droll “Steve,” written and directed by Rupert Friend.
  • Lily Tomlin gets lost on her way to the funeral of a woman she never met in “The Procession.” 
  • Jason Alexander is a screenwriter at the end of his rope in the musical short “Not Your Time.”
  • The acerbic Neil LaBute wrote and directed “Sexting,” in which Julia Stiles delivers a heartfelt monologue, ending with a hilarious surprise twist.
  • LaBute also wrote the pitch black comedy “After-School Special,” in which Wes Bentley and Sarah Paulsen have an awkward encounter at an indoor playground. In the science fiction short “Prodigal,” 
  • Kenneth Branagh plays a mysterious and sinister man pursuing the supernaturally talented young girl.

Note: This shorts program contains adult language.

DIRECTORS: Jacob Chase, Robert Festinger, Chris Foggin, Rupert Friend, Benjamin Grayson, Jay Kamen, Neil Labute

Happy viewing,
