Denver Film Festival will open with Knives Out and present Rian Johnson with the John Cassavetes Award

42nd Denver Film Festival :: October 30–November 10, 2019

DENVER FILM FESTIVAL TO OPEN WITH KNIVES OUT AND HONOR RIAN JOHNSON


The 42nd Denver Film Festival will present filmmaker Rian Johnson with the John Cassavetes Award after Opening Night screening of new film Knives Out.
 

Oct. 15, 2019 (DENVER) — The 42nd Denver Film Festival announced today that it will open Oct. 31 with Rian Johnson’s latest film, the crowd-pleasing whodunit, Knives Out with Johnson receiving the 2019 John Cassavetes Award following the screening. It will be the second time the Denver Film Festival will open with a title written and directed by Johnson (DFF31 Brother’s Bloom), the first filmmaker to accomplish this feat in the 42-year history of the Festival.

"Rian Johnson is one of the most important voices in the new Hollywood era and one we've been celebrating for his entire career,” said Festival Director, Britta Erickson. “Long before Star Wars: The Last Jedi screened to sold out audiences at Film On the Rocks, the Denver Film Festival screened Rian's first film, Brick, to rave reviews. We are honored to bring Rian back to the Festival and present him with this year's John Cassavetes Award. He is an artist who is changing the landscape of cinema across the globe and that is reflected in the stellar cast he assembled for Knives Out."

In Knives Out, when famed crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead, debonair detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) must untangle the web of red herrings and lies spun by Harlan’s dysfunctional inner circle to get to the truth in this delightful whodunit. The film also stars Toni Collette, Michael Shannon and Chris Evans.

The prestigious John Cassavetes Award was established in collaboration with Gena Rowlands in 1989. It is presented annually to a film artist who has made a significant contribution to the world of filmmaking and whose work reflects the spirit of the late John Cassavetes - his unique vision, maverick sensibility, unwavering integrity and tenacious ability to survive as an artist against difficult odds. Past recipients include Steven Soderbergh, Jim Jarmusch, John Sayles, Alan Rudolph, Robert M. Young, Seymour Cassell, Hal Hartley, Charles Burnett, Errol Morris, D.A. Pennebaker & Chris Hegedus, Barbara Kopple, Sean Penn, Richard Linklater, Nick Nolte, William H. Macy, Kevin Bacon, Philip Baker Hall, Tim Robbins, Bill Pullman, JK Simmons, Elliott Gould, Judy Greer, Vince Vaughn, Harry Dean Stanton, John Turturro and Kyra Sedgwick.
