Breckenridge film fest begins rolling today

BRECKENRIDGE – This year’s Breckenridge Festival of Film hits the silver screen at 6:30 p.m. today at the Summit High School auditorium with the premiere of “The Emperor’s Club,” starring Kevin Kline.

“The Emperor’s Club” tells the story of a relationship between a prep school teacher (Kline) and a troubled student who lives in the shadow of his father. WNBC-TV film critic and festival host Jeffrey Lyons calls it a masterpiece.

The celebration continues with a champagne gala at 9 p.m. at the Quandary Grill in Main Street Station in Breckenridge. Actor, writer and producer Jon Favreau, whose credits include “Swingers,” “Made” and the HBO-smash television series “The Sopranos,” will mingle with guests.

Hearty appetizers, including stuffed mushrooms, fruit-puff pastries and a dessert bar, will accompany champagne and wine. Tickets are $15 for the film and $65 for the champagne gala. They may be purchased by calling (970) 453-6200.
