The Emerging Filmmakers Project (EFP) has been the home of Denver’s independent film scene since 2002.  Held the third Thursday of every month and hosted by local filmmaker Patrick Sheridan, 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 7:30 and screening starts at 8:00 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!
