The Denver Film Festival turned 40 this year with nearly two weeks of features, shorts, panels, and parties. Highlights from weekend one, and weekend two.

DFF40’s closing night film: I, Tonya

Also in Film: a glowing review of Brimstone & Glory, some praise for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and some thoughts on The Square, a movie that had me thinking about mother!Justice League, and the abominable Downsizing.

Over at Drink: an interview with Whitney Way about City Star’s latest barrel-aged stout, a preview of Left Hand’s Nitro Beer Festival  (one of the best fests around), the inside scoop from Ashleigh Carter of Bierstadt Lagerhaus about their magnificent Slow Pour Pils, a beginner’s guide to Session IPAs, and a recap of a busy Fall beer season.

And last, but certainly not least, I had a chance to speak with Pixar’s Danielle Feinberg about Coco‘s technical triumph.
