It is with great sadness that we are announcing the official end of operations for Festivus Film Festival and it’s sister festival, Laugh Track Comedy Fest.
There were a number of factors that contributed to this very difficult decision, most of which were beyond our control. Rather than continue at a reduced capacity, we decided this was the best way to preserve our organization’s legacy.
When we started Festivus Film Festival in a basement in 2007, we never anticipated what it would become. We always wanted it to be about the filmmakers, and so for those hundreds of filmmakers that allowed us to present their films to Denver over the years, we offer a final “Thank you.”
And to all of the volunteers that have been a part of Festivus- this was your festival, and we hope you’ll continue to be proud of what we accomplished.
We will always look back on the films, photos, friendships and parties with fond memories.
This is an end to an incredible adventure, but new ones are just now starting for all of us involved with Festivus FF.
To all our supporters world wide and right here in Denver, we want to again say thanks for everything.
See you at the movies!
The Festivus Family
