With an outstanding cast (Jason Dohring, Minka Kelly, Masi Oka), this film most recently blew up the screens at Austin Film Fest. No doubt Searching for Sonny is going to be a circuit heavyweight, and we are very proud to present the Colorado Premiere. The film tells the story of reunited friends who find themselves the chief suspects of a murder mystery that seems eerily similar to a play they performed in high school. Get your tickets for the screening now! (Sat. Jan 14, 8:00pm @ The Oriental). Producer Red Sanders will be in attendance.
So for an extremely limited time (until Dec. 31), Full Festival Passes will be available at Englewood Camera for only $50. This is a $25 savings over the regular price! It includes entrance and
preferred seating at all screenings, entrance to all after parties, and
access to our Filmmaker Lounge, where you can mingle with the
filmmakers, relax between blocks, and have a few drinks on us. In
addition, the “dropcard code” on the back of every pass gives you
exclusive content available only to passholders, including extended film
trailers, .mp3s from our performing bands, drink and merchandise
coupons, and much more. The VIP Festival Pass is the BEST way to
experience Festivus Film Festival!
