Hello and welcome to our 43rd edition of Aspen Filmfest!

We’re thrilled to gather with you to celebrate some of the best cinema from around the globe.

As I looked at the films that are debuting this fall and winter season, I was blown away by the unbelievable stories about human nature, and the ways in which people put the past behind them and move forward, becoming stronger in the process.

We are fortunate to have curated this selection of films for Filmfest this year, ranging from an anthropomorphic rover which embeds itself in our hearts like a friend, to the bravest defenders of equality and justice. Our films examine the notion of family; test the bonds of friendship and teach us what it means to be loyal – to oneself, to others, to a cause; and confront us with the importance of self care and mental health.

Our selections take us from South Korea, to deep in the Southern US, to Latin America, the Emerald Isle, and to Mars, once again emphasizing that no matter who we are or where we come from, human nature is similar, and that friendship in any form is valuable.

Be ready to laugh, cry, get frustrated, be inspired, and experience something new – we promise that you will leave transformed no matter which film you see. This is the magic of the movies.

See you at the cinema!
