Part of our "The Fourth Estate" Film + Conversation series
In 2019, the Denver Film Society will present a series of films and talks examining the state of journalism, as it intersects with changing business models, social power structures, modern technology, and governmental shifts. Join us for this unprecedented series as we screen the best in journalistic cinema, and invite industry leaders of Colorado and beyond for post-film conversations to address some of the most pressing issues facing the Fourth Estate today.

This Academy Award-nominated biopic tells the true story of a cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents. Following Daniel Ellsberg’s leak of the Pentagon Papers, The Washington Post publisher Katherine Graham (Meryl Streep) and Editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) must decide how far to go to protect the freedom of the press.

Meet the New Press: Join us for an afternoon with Denver's online journalists, moderated by Westword co-founder and editor Patricia Calhoun, and including Ashley Dean, Assistant Editor of Denverite, Susan Greene, Editor of The Colorado Independent, and Dana Coffield, Senior Editor of The Colorado Sun. Sponsored by: Denver Woman’s Press Club & Colorado Press Women
