Aspen Filmfest Re-christened "Aspen Film"

By Indiewire | Indiewire November 17, 2006 at 2:11AM

Film arts organization Aspen Filmfest is changing its name to Aspen Film. The official change will debut during the group's upcoming "Academy Screenings" series (December 18 - January 1), which will spotlight "anticipated" features and documentaries leading up to the Academy Award season. According to the organization, the move to Aspen Film will "distinguish the year-round parent organization from its seasonal events including Aspen Shortsfest, Aspen Filmfest, Academy Screenings and summerFILMS, as well as numerous educational programs. Individual event and program names will not be altered. "We are nearing our 30th year as a thriving organization that operates many film programs all year long," commented executive director Laura Thielen in a statement. "While our festivals and film series enjoy a high profile, we also present numerous other community programs including extensive youth outreach. We believe it is important to clarify our organizational scope and mission for the public." [Brian Brooks]
