IFF is a community-focused experience held in late June at the Open Media Foundation in the heart of Denver’s Santa Fe Arts District. Our absolute desire is to engender a festive atmosphere where both filmmakers and the film-viewing public can connect, communicate, and have a remarkable time.

As actors and filmmakers who have chosen to live in Colorado, we are inspired to highlight the extraordinary skills of local writers, producers, filmmakers, and artistic talent while attracting first-rate storytellers from all over the world. The very best of their film submissions are selected by a team of experienced judges and screened during the Festival.
