Best Film Bet: Boulder International Film Festival

February 12 2009, 1:31 PM

Between Lincoln's birthday, Valentine's Day, and President's Day, this weekend gives plenty of reason to celebrate--and the Boulder International Film Festival a plethora of ways to do so. Consider our nation's moral groundings during the opening night's showing of Nothing But the Truth, a political thriller, starring Kate Beckinsale, about New York Times reporter Judith Miller and the First Amendment. Enjoy the day of love at the festival's Valentine's Day gala and Chevy Chase tribute. And rethink domestic and international affairs with movies like David Lynch's education documentary, School of Thought, and local filmmaker Daniel Junge's Come Back to Sudan. Thu-Sun, Feb. 12-15; times and locations vary 303-449-2283 $10 for regular admission, other ticket prices vary
