The upcoming Emerging Filmmakers Project at the Bug Theatre on Thursday, May 17th will mark the 10th anniversary of this local film showcase. Host and organizer Patrick Sheridan, who's been involved with the EFP since he screened his short film Water Cooler in 2005, says that this month's special show will feature some of the movies screened in Vail last month as part of the Hint Fiction Film Contest, including Nelson Goforth’s winning entry, The Things We Own Tell Stories. Several other cool short films will show as well, including the latest Grawlix episode from the Nix Brothers and the world premiere of Sheridan's own Betsy's New Car.

There will also be a very special guest: Oscar winner and Denver resident Daniel Junge, who took home a 2012 Oscar for Best Short Documentary for the film Saving Face, about a doctor who helps victims of acid attacks. Junge’s history with the EFP goes back a long way, having screened a film at one of the very first shows. You can read more about Junge's Oscar win here.

Tickets are just $5 for the 8p.m. show, and cake will be served for this special anniversary celebration. The show is not appropriate for all ages. The Bug Theatre is located at 3654 Navajo the Highlands, just northwest of downtown.
