The Emerging Filmmakers Project (EFP) has been the home of Denver’s independent film scene since 2002. Held the third Thursday of every month the EFP is a great place to screen your work, network with other creatives in town, and to support your fellow indie filmmakers.

A spirited talkback with each filmmaker follows their movie where you, the audience, gets to to tell the filmmaker exactly what you really think of their work! Doors open at 6:30 and screening starts at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are just $5.

Oh, and click on the filmmaker’s name to read our EFP interview with them or go to their website!
