“We’re thrilled to be coming back during our usual early March dates,” says Kathy Beeck, co founder of BIFF. “As always, our goal is to present a varied, eclectic mix of films, filmmakers and events that will be of interest to the community in Boulder, the Front Range and beyond.”

Included in the price of both tickets is a screening of Blind Ambition, a film about four Zimbabwean refugees who have conquered the odds to become South Africa’s top sommeliers. They set their sights on the coveted title of ‘World Wine Tasting Champions’ and, from the moment they arrive in France to compete, this team of mavericks turns an establishment of privilege and tradition on its head. A truly uplifting documentary that celebrates just how irrepressible the human spirit can be. The film screening will be after CineCHEF at the Century Boulder theaters at 7:30pm.
