BIFF Is Here

Feels like Boulder is getting more glittery by the minute this week. No, I'm not talking about the window displays for Valentine's Day. I'm talking about Boulder's version of Hollywood -- the Boulder International Film Festival. Starting tomorrow and lasting through Sunday, you can check out some really fantastic films all over Boulder. Five of the films included in the lineup have been nominated for Oscars, and another, "Enemies of the People," was nominated for the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. Of course, what would a film festival be without celebrities? Blythe Danner will be present at the opening night festivities, which includes the premiere of her movie, "The Lightkeepers." Alec Baldwin, from NBC's 30 Rock, will be on hand on Valentine's Day for the closing night for a special tribute. Keep up with all the BIFF shenanigans by following them on Twitter or Facebook.

Of course, we had to get in on the fun here at the Boulderado. In addition to hosting a special get-together for the filmmakers, we are also offering a Visitor's Package for BIFF's Opening Night: you can book a room at the Hotel Boulderado for the night of the 11th, receive 2 tickets to the Opening Night Festivities, and your valet parking is included. So easy, a caveman could do it.

Or, at the very least, so easy Nederland's Frozen Dead Guy could do it.
