    Denver Film Festival: 3 films worth seeing each day

    DENVER — If you’re like me, the Denver Film Festival sneaks up on you every year. And it’s a true shame, as well, considering the quality cinema the Denver Film Society and Starz are bringing to our city in the 37th running of this festival. What sort of quality, you ask? On one day you’ll see Benedict Cumberbatch in a role that’s expected to garner him an Oscar nomination for best actor. On another you can catch James Gandolfini’s final film. And on […]
