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.

When a hot story lands in his lap, the life of a fictional New York City tabloid editor (Michael Keaton) gets infinitely more complicated. Juggling a tempting new job offer, a very pregnant wife, staff squabbles and a stand-off with his boss, workaholic Henry must decide how passionately to fight for the truth.

The future of daily news in Colorado: Faced with declining revenues, rising costs, media consolidation, management disputes, threats of tariffs, and attacks by the country’s leaders, daily news organizations are under assault like never before. Jay Seaton, Publisher of The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, Jill Farschman, CEO of the Colorado Press Association, and other Colorado journalism leaders, will put on funny hats and try to predict the future for daily news across the state.
