Code of Conduct

Aspen Shortsfest promotes and advocates for film as a medium to express different perspectives, experiences, identities, and unique interpretations of art and life. We are committed to providing our audiences, guests, and partners with an experience that is safe, free of discrimination and inappropriate behavior.

 

Aspen Shortsfest defines inappropriate behavior as any form of written, verbal, or physical abuse or threats, the use of derogatory or discriminatory language, gestures or actions, any form of harassment, racism, sexism, or any other targeted comments which may violate any local, state or federal laws or cause personal offense to another Aspen Shortsfest participant before, during or after the festival. Harassment, threatening behavior, and violence will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to revoke, without notice or refund, tickets, passes, credentials, or access to Aspen Shortsfest events and venues.

 

You can reach out directly to info@aspenfilm.org if you believe you’ve observed or experienced a violation of this policy, and Aspen Shortsfest will work to assess the situation and to respond as soon as possible. Please remember that notifying Aspen Shortsfest does not constitute or replace a notification to local law enforcement. Emails sent to info@aspenfilm.org will be received by the Aspen Shortsfest Executive + Artistic Director and Operations + Productions Director.
