The Women+Film Festival will run from April 4-9 and showcase documentaries, narratives and short films celebrating the best in women-centric programming. The Festival includes panel discussions, in-person guests and receptions while highlighting thought-provoking, inspirational stories of women from around the world. The festival features Opening and Closing Night receptions and a VIP reception for filmmakers and pass-holders. The festival is a part of the Denver Film Society’s year round Women+Film program, which has a mission to promote films for, by and about women to engage with the audience, build community, educate and inspire.
The SAG-AFTRA Colorado Local and the SAG-AFTRA National Women’s Committee are co-sponsoring the Closing Night film,Sticky Notes, an American drama written and directed by Amanda Sharp. The film features Ray Liotta, Rose Leslie, Gina Rodriguez and Justin Bartha. Director Amanda Sharp will be at the screening in person. There’s also a closing night reception.
The film explores the story of Athena (Rose Leslie), a struggling dancer trying to make it in L.A. Athena's father Jack (Ray Liotta) interrupts her lonely and detached existence when he asks her to move home to Florida to care for him. Big news: he has cancer. Nursing Jack proves to be more and more challenging for Athena, so much that when she is called back to L.A for the greatest dance opportunity of her twenty-five years, she takes it. What follows is a heart-wrenching journey of growing up told with ample moments of humor and levity, candidly illuminating father/daughter relationships and bonds that despite being broken, always find their way back home.
