“We Have Issues”
September 10-15, 2014
DocuWest looks to explore the world through through the lens of documentary filmmakers from around the globe. We embrace the idea that cinematic truth, revealed in a non-narrative manner, can allow the filmmakers to present stories about, and insights into, politics, society, history, and culture either surreptitiously or purposely. With the ability to more easily capture subjects and events through less expensive forms of production, documentary filmmaking has become an art form whereby many diverse voices of people from around the planet can be heard.
DocuWest’s mission is to present our audiences with stories that are not only astonishing and jarring, but awe-inspiring and thought-provoking. These stories enable dialogue and discourse to take place over the people, events, and subjects presented in each film. DocuWest is located in the film-loving city of Denver, Colorado. Screenings take place in the beautiful Sie FilmCenter in the Capital Hill area of Denver. This relationship enables DocuWest to continue bringing audiences non-narrative films that empower us to take a look at ourselves and the world we live in.
