Aspen Film Shortsfest Pre-Party

Photos by Muriel Perez | April 9, 2018 | Parties

The BLK MKT (pronounced: “black market”) retail pop-up hosted Aspen Film just a few days before it packed up to roam elsewhere. The concept shop grew out of a desire to utilize empty spaces. Vacant buildings like 419 E. Hyman Ave. morph into hubs of local culture, creating an ideal space for Aspen Film to invite young film enthusiasts to participate in their extensive programming. Executive Director Susan Wrubel spoke of Shortsfest and other series they will offer to the community in 2018, focusing on projects that appeal to a younger audience. The party was also sponsored by Aspen Brewing Company and served up themed cocktails called Thelma and Louise, classic movie theatre popcorn, and live DJ Nick Brown.
