Mission Statement

The mission of the Colorado Film Society (CFS) is to encourage and celebrate the art of film by creating a dynamic forum for artistic, social and cultural awareness in the community.


The CFS offers four programs throughout the year: (1) the Boulder International Film Festival (BIFF); (2) the CFS Educational Outreach Program; (3) the CFS Community Resource Program; and (4) the CFS Film Series.

BIFF offers audiences an opportunity to see films from all corners of the world and to learn from a diverse group of filmmakers. Since the inaugural festival was presented in 2005, BIFF has developed a reputation as one of the most influential and innovative young film festivals in the U.S.

An extraordinary number of new films have gone on from early screenings at BIFF to significant box-office success and multiple Oscar nominations. The CFS also inspires tomorrow’s film artists through year-round educational outreach programs, including "World Cinema Days" which bring international film, filmmakers, and presentations to local students; through Schmoozers, our networking event which provides a venue for people involved or interested in the film arts and industry to mix and mingle, and through the CFS Community Resource Program, which provides various forms of no-cost support, resources and mentorship to many arts organizations in Boulder County.

It's a good fit for those looking to gain applied experience and/or fill the soul-hole via service. I am trying to think of a time when interacting with my fellow team leads was unenjoyable... can't think of once! The folks who put up and show up are second to none, dedicated to follow-through. The two org leaders are also very committed to follow-though. I found communication with them to be challenging at times - they are busy, that's a part of it; I had the impression that they also valued some folks' purposes and work tasks more than others, which was unaligned with how I function as a team member. I'd recommend this project to folks who are craving some high commitment levels and love to use their many talents to and quick wits to overcome all kinds of professional challenges. If you're a lover of the cinema, you may delight in being steeped in the scene, but you may be disappointed about inability to actually attend showings: in all likelihood you *will* be busy!
