Vail! VAil! VAIL! 8th Annual Vail Film Festival

Vail! Vail! VAIL – Like nothing on Earth and that is truth! The Vail Resorts Spring to Vail campaign will be putting a spring in your stride and soul! First of all they are open until April 24th. Second Vail’s Blue Sky Basin, China Bowl and Additional Terrain will remain Open through Closing Weekend and THIRD Vail’s huge end-of-the-season bash offers free concerts from national headliners, street parties and fun on the snow events! To wrap it all up is the World Pond Skimming Championships, closing day!

This will be one of many posts so I will start with this weekend’s MAJOR event:

http://www.vailfilmfest.com/program/. Festival activities include film screenings, panel discussions, live music, nightly galas, and the filmmaker reception. The Colorado Film Institute is a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts organization dedicated to fostering independent cinema. The Colorado Film Institute’s primary initiatives are to promote the art of film by providing a screening platform for aspiring filmmakers and by providing a gathering place for film enthusiasts. The Colorado Film Institute is proud to stage the Vail Film Festival, a four-day event that enlightens and entertains thousands of film festival attendees and offers a creative outlet to the film world’s newest storytellers and innovators.

The Vail Film Festival is pleased to announce that JOSH LUCAS, star of Sweet Home Alabama, Glory Road, The Lincoln Lawyer, and Clint Eastwood’s upcoming J.Edgar, will be honored with the 2011 Vanguard Award. KATE BOSWORTH, star of Blue Crush, Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns and Kevin Spacey’s Beyond the Sea will receive the Excellence in Acting Award, and Emmy Award winning actor and filmmaker, MICHAEL IMPERIOLI, star of Detroit 1-8-7, The Sopranos, and The Lovely Bones, will receive this year’s Renegade Award. Josh, Kate, and Michael will be honored at the Festival Awards Ceremony at 6:30pm on Saturday, April 2nd at the Vail Mountain School.
