Film fans, your time has come!
More than 50 independent films and theatre performances, including several premiers shown at CSU’s Lory Student Center Theater, will be presented Sept. 7-9 at the seventh annual TriMedia Film Festival at venues across Fort Collins.
Highlights include the festival’s opening night film, “The Citizen,” and Saturday night feature film, “Red Dog.” A complete schedule of films and venues are available at the festival’s website.
“The Citizen” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Friday in the Lincoln Center’s main performance hall. The film, based on a true story, tells of a Lebanese man who wins the U.S. Green Card Lottery and arrives in New York City the day before 9/11. The terrorist attacks shape the struggles he faces on his journey to becoming an American citizen.
Producer/director Sam Kadi and co-star Cary Elwes will attend the screening and will answer audience questions following the film.
“Red Dog” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the newly renovated Lory Student Center Theater. The award-winning film, also based on true events, tells the story of an extraordinary dog that unites a remote mining community in Western Australia. Red Dog was legendary for his journeys through the outback in search of his master. The film, which has become a huge commercial success in Australia, stars Josh Lucas and Rachael Taylor.
Films will be shown starting at noon Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday at the Lory Student Theater. Tickets are available online or at the door.
