Aspen Film’s community collaborations allow us to offer a broad range of films throughout the Roaring Fork Valley year-round, many of which would not otherwise appear on local screens.


In addition to continuing our ongoing series collaborations Movies at the Museum (M@M) with the Aspen Art Museum, our monthly Indie Showcase at Metropolitan Theatres, and our second Summer collaboration with Aspen Music Festival & School, we are proud to announce the Summer series Movies Under the Stars with The Collective at Snowmass Base Village (SBV), and a return partnership with the Aspen Institute and the Eisner/Lauder New Views Documentaries & Dialogue Series. These highly curated programs help foster awareness for and dialogue around humanity through cinema.


M@M and Movies Under the Stars are all complimentary programs, open to the public.


We are pleased to offer complimentary admission to all Indie Showcase screenings to current Aspen Film members as just one of the many perks you’ll receive when supporting our non-profit organization. Click here to join or renew your Aspen Film membership.

In small-town Preston, Idaho, awkward teen Napoleon Dynamite (Jon Heder) has trouble fitting in. After his grandmother is injured in an accident, his life is made even worse when his strangely nostalgic uncle, Rico (Jon Gries), shows up to keep an eye on him. With no safe haven at home or at school, Napoleon befriends the new kid, Pedro (Efren Ramirez), a morose Hispanic boy who speaks little English. Together the two launch a campaign to run for class president.
