To my knowledge there has never been a great movie about Denver, Colorado. It’s so weird to me that although we are bigger and in every way better than Boulder, there are a ton of shows and movies set in Boulder, and almost none in Denver. The main movie that people mention is called “Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead” which is a great title, but not so much a great movie, and it has next to nothing to do with our amazing Mile High City. I would like to start a Denver Film Festival, so instead of digging into the past I started looking for talented people here and now who want to make a movie in Denver. Much to my surprise I found a ton of interest to this idea, and although I can’t say his name, one of the starting members of the Denver Nuggets pledged ten thousand bucks to help get the festival together! This guy just loves his community, and since he has a kid who loves making home movies, he wants to help support and grow that part of Denver. With some funds to back me up, I started recruiting local talent to make short films for my Homegrown Denver Film Fest. Because the Mile High City is known for getting high, I started visiting local cannabis dispensaries to see if they would support the festival. It seems like everything is really coming together, we have the Denver fair grounds booked, and three different cannabis dispensaries will be there with tents and tables to sell their wares.
