The Aspen Filmfest audience will be the first to see the narrative feature outside of its Toronto International Film Festival premiere earlier in the month.
“Aspen Film is honored to open our 37th Aspen Filmfest with such an anticipated title,” said Aspen Film Executive Director John Thew. “ROOM is sure to set the stage for our forthcoming impressive and diverse program.”
One of Colorado’s longest running film festivals, the 37th Aspen Filmfest runs Friday, Sept. 25 – Wednesday, Sept. 30 at Paepcke Auditorium and Isis Theater in Aspen and the Crystal Theatre in Carbondale.
