2018 Festival: September 20 – 23
“Just saw Stuck at the Breckenridge Film Festival in Colorado and I have to say it’s easily one of my new favorite movies. I was worried it was gonna be a little froofy cause it’s a musical, but it wound up being powerful, emotional, and hysterical. It never bothered me that they broke into song. The music was incredible, a blend of a whole bunch of styles so that each of the main characters had a unique voice. It was a simple enough premise- six strangers stuck on a NYC subway- but I feel like I really got to know these characters and can’t stop thinking about what’s gonna happen to them now. Though I related to just about everyone in the film, even if you don’t, the story is so universal you’re bound to identify with one of the characters. I’m never gonna look at a stranger the same way again.”
Many thanks for an outstanding film festival experience! Not only did you nail the weather, with the aspen color perfectly timed, but your hard work and planning pulled off a smooth and enjoyable film festival for filmmakers and audience alike. I hope I can bring future projects to BreckFilmFest!
We collaborated with the Building Hope Organization to bring the film Holden On to the “Stigma, Suicide & Hope program. An attendee wrote: being here “helps me with the tools to speak about the subject of suicide”.
