The 43rd Denver Film Festival (DFF43) announced today the complete virtual lineup, including feature films, short films, student shorts, music videos, and episodic content. Along with the virtual lineup, DFF43 announced all feature juried competition films.



"The DFF43 program befits the complexities and opportunities presented to us in 2020 — a balance of thought provoking, issue-driven films addressing our challenging times, along with inspirational, charming, and life-affirming fare," said Denver Film Festival Artistic Director, Matthew Campbell. "The program is an expansive, yet focused, sampling of international, U.S., and local films; with the goal of offering something for all tastes. Though we might not be able to convene in person this year, we hope these films connect Colorado cinema lovers in a way we've never before achieved."
