The San Sebastian Festival has added several new titles to its competition lineup, including new features from British helmers Harry Macqueen and Julien Temple.
Supernova, Macqueen's follow-up to his celebrated debut Hinterland, stars Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci as Sam and Tusker, a gay couple, together for 20 years, traveling across the English countryside on holiday. Tusker has been diagnosed with young-onset dementia, and they know they have very little time left together.
"It is a huge honor to be premiering the film at San Sebastian this year," Macqueen said in a statement. "Supernova is a film about how love overcomes even the hardest human experiences and what we are willing to sacrifice for the people we adore. It is a romantic and life affirming film, which at a time like this seems more important than ever."
A life-affirming tale of a different sort is to be found in Temple's Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan. The music documentary, produced by Johnny Depp, is a portrait of the legendary Irish folk punk musician, lead singer of The Pogues and notorious wild man. Crock of Gold is the latest in Temple's cinematic chronicles of rock music, following such acclaimed music docs as 2000's The Filth and the Fury, about the Sex Pistols, Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten (2007) and The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson (2015).
Keeping to the musical theme, actor Matt Dillon will present a special screening in San Sebastian of his documentary El Gran Fellove. The film, a portrait of Cuban musician Francisco Fellove, is Dillon's second film as a director, following the 2002 thriller City of Ghosts.
Other titles in the running for San Sebastian's Golden Shell competition award this year are Passion Simple from French-Lebanese director Danielle Arbid and Eduardo Crespo's Argentinian drama We Will Never Die. Passion Simple was among the titles picked for the Cannes 2020 lineup that will screen in San Sebastian after Cannes was forced to cancel due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Other Cannes 2020 titles that will have their world premiere in San Sebastian include Francois Ozon's Summer of 85, Another Round from Thomas Vinterberg and Naomi Kawase's True Mothers.
The 2020 San Sebastian Film Festival kicks off Sept. 18 with the out-of-competition world premiere of Woody Allen’s new comedy Rifkin’s Festival.

Get out and discover Denver this weekend...even if you never leave your home. Programs both in-person and virtual will cover everything from youth violence to Alexander Hamilton to the architecture of Denver. In fact, the Denver Architecture Foundation and the Colorado Photographic Arts Center have launched the third annual Doors Open Denver Photography Competition, “Y/OUR Denver,” encouraging you to find and photograph your favorite part of Denver, and then enter the picture in a juried competition.
“‘Y/OUR Denver’ has become a favorite part of our annual Doors Open Denver event,” says Pauline Herrera, DAF executive director. “Every year we have an opportunity to see Denver architecture through the lens of these contest entries, providing a unique perspective of buildings featured in Doors Open Denver and beyond.”Marijuana Deals Near You
The contest closes October 29; find out more here. Keep reading for more information on Doors Open Denver, as well as eleven more events in and around town this weekend (and watch for updates).
Doors Open Denver
Through October 15
Building off the success of past events, the annual Doors Open Denver has also gone virtual in 2020. While the timing, duration and scope of this institution has changed (there will even be a photo contest), what hasn’t changed is its focus on offering insider tours that provide exclusive access to — and unique information about — historic buildings, new buildings and everything in between. This year's tours highlight a dozen spaces ranging from cultural to commercial to civic structures; one tour a day will be offered four days a week, each with a question-and-answer period with experts. Tours are $7 for Denver Architecture Foundation members and $9 for non-members; find all the details at denverarchitecture.org.

Thursday, October 1, through October 14
Theater 29 and the Lulubird Project have set up a novel theatrical experience for these stay-at-home, virus-plagued times: The event comes to you in a box, and you get to interact with three local playwrights: Lisa Wagner Erickson, Ellen K. Graham and Tami Canaday. Here’s how it works: You register and receive artwork and instructions in your mailbox; an email containing audio and/or video files follows. Graham’s Against Sand provides an animated story enhanced by the cut-out renderings of the characters you received by mail. For A Shiny Quest, Wagner Erickson has created a fantasy game: Set up the pieces at home, turn on her audio, and let the challenge begin. Printed art for backdrops and character renderings come with Canaday’s Art of a Guest. The project is not only DIY and immersive, it’s a testament to the creative ways that theater artists are finding to connect with the community. Tickets are $12 and available at theater29denver.com.

At the grand opening, Temaki Den and Made in Japan will join for an elegant party with a maker tour, sushi hand-rolls, a live demo by Colorado ceramic artist Kazu Oba of O’baware and a takeaway gift. Tickets, $40, are available for any of three time slots on Friday and Saturday at Eventbrite.

Pricing comes at various levels, beginning at $12; get info and tickets here.

Parade for the People
Saturday, October 3, 2 to 4 p.m.

Learn more and RSVP for the parade at Eventbrite. The show itself features the work of more than thirty artists and organizations who show how making art itself can be a political act, raising awareness of issues ranging from climate change to immigration — and whatever else is on our collective civic mind at this moment; find out more at mcadenver.org.
