The Breckenridge Film Festival’s upcoming fundraiser, Hollywood & Wine, is slated for 6-9 p.m. June 21 at Beaver Run’s Imperial Ballroom. It’s a red-carpet evening of fine wines and local beers, delicious eats and a silent auction. The event features a screening of the 2013 Academy Award winning live action short “Lady in Number Six,” as well as a sneak preview of the 2014 festival. The community has supported the festival in a huge way by donating excellent silent auction items ranging from a coveted private dinner with CMC’s culinary master, Ian Buchanan, to rounds of golf and lessons at the Breckenridge Golf Course to artwork, pet perks, dinner certificates and more. Joining the film festival at this event helps further the organization’s mission of presenting and celebrating art in the form of cinema to the community, visitors and filmmakers through diverse film experiences in an authentic mountain environment, including film nights, education forums, free youth and family programming, and the four-day festival.
