Aspen Film Academy Screenings program Oscar frontrunners – AWARDS ALLEY
By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: It’s no secret that Hollywood shuts down for the holidays. Some head to warmer climes in Hawaii. Others go skiing in Aspen. Which is why the Aspen Film Academy Screening series annually assists voters hoping to squeeze in crucial screenings while still on holiday. The Oscar race doesn’t take a vacation, after all.
This year’s screening series kicked off on Wednesday, Dec. 21, and will run through Jan. 1. Screenings are open to the public, but press reps emphasized that the series is targeted toward Academy and guild members who happen to be in Aspen over the holidays.
Screenings take place at the Harris Concert Hall, located at 960 North 3rd St., in Aspen. Voting members of AMPAS, BAFTA, and associated guilds should contact the Aspen Film directly to RSVP. Use the email RSVP@aspenfilm.org or call 970.925.6882, extension 308.
