We’ve just completed day 4 of the 2009 Festivus Film Festival. It was a huge success! Stay tuned to the site for some post-fest wrap ups over the next few days. We’ll also be posting pics and the award winners coming up. Thanks again to all the filmmakers, fans, and staffers who made this festival what it is. You should all be very proud!
Well we kicked things off last night and everybody that came out had a great time. Couldn’t ask for a better opening night! There has been a lot of great buzz about the fest too. Check out this great article from the Westword. They also did a really cool slide show of our opening night.
The Get Real Denver website also has a really nice writeup about the fest.
Things keep rolling from here with a great triple header starting off at 7:00 tonight, followed by Courting Condi at 9:00. Don’t forget that the Umconscious plays live after Courting Condi, and the show is free and open to the public. See you there!

Arch’s Iguanas is a documentary film about Sherman Arch, who began protecting iguanas on his personal property in the early 80′s after realizing that the population of the creatures was dwindling due to excessive hunting.
Now, 27 years later he has over 3,500 iguanas roaming his 10-acre ‘farm’ on the Honduran island of Roatan. He continues to educate and entertain thousands of visitors each year about the dangers of over-hunting and poaching that threatens this animals’ existence on the island.
Arch’s Iguanas plays Saturday Jan. 10 at 12:15pm at the Bug Theatre. It will be preceded by feature-length documentary The Cost of Oil.
