For The Filmmakers

BolderLife supports emotional education and growth. Films are the glue that keep the festival together. This Colorado-based, International Festival celebrates the exploration of life, death and change.We introduce difficult and taboo topics through film then deepen the conversation with professional speakers and workshops that help audiences explore discomfort, cultivate mindfulness and live in courage. Our event brings community together to learn and grow both locally at our yearly event and internationally through our live-stream. The educational component that we pare with our film line up deepens audience participation and leads to breakthroughs.

We are excited and honored to host you and your film in our beautiful city!

Our past program have highlighted topics such as  Creative Ways out of conflict, Unexpected Outcomes Through Lives Lessons, teen suciede, Queer awareness, mental illness, bullying, athletes with disabilities, cultural diversity, sustainability, and sexuality.
