The 23rd annual Aspen Shortsfest brought together more than 50 filmmakers for six days of public screenings, panel discussions and more. An awards ceremony honored winners in multiple categories, including six Academy Award-qualifying ones.
The jury included screenwriters Craig Borten (Dallas Buyers Club), David Pollock (M*A*S*H) and Peter Blake (House M.D.), and Denver Post film critic Lisa Kennedy.
The well-deserved winners celebrated at Rustique Bistro with margaritas and a menu of steak au poivre, roasted chicken and pan-roasted trout. -Photos by Sociallight
