Inside The Programmer's Mind is our Jan/Feb/Mar Denver Film Member screening series set to crack open the gourds of our Denver Film Festival programmers and put them to task to select a film that they championed in a previous DFF, and tell us why and exactly what goes into selecting a title and getting it on screen, sometimes even amid controversy.
Keith Garcia - Artistic Director of the Sie FilmCenter takes the reins this month while Matt Campbell - Artistic Director of Festivals - presents his film on February 10 and Britta Erickson - Denver Film Festival Director - shows us her cards on March 10.

This documentary looks back at the making of the film Troll 2 from the perspective of its former child actor star, Michael Stephenson. In 1989, a group of actors and an Italian production crew join forces to produce a slice of unwitting cinematic history. Stephenson and those involved with the ill-fated sequel tell the story of Italian director Claudio Fragasso's B-movie classic, among them the Alabama dentist who became a cult star because of his one famous, immortal line.
