Colorado Dragon Boat Film Fest, “Jurassic World” tour, and more things to do in Denver


Dragon Boat Film Fest returns in-person

Through Sunday. The lack of Asian faces in cinema has finally become a mainstream conversation, but rarely a sustained one. Instead of talking about it, Colorado Dragon Boat Festival has since 2016 staged its Colorado Dragon Boat Film Festival, billed as the only Colorado event that spotlights Asian and Asian-American filmmakers.

Starting three years ago, Denver Film also joined in, which makes this year’s seventh annual fest another (newly mask-free) boon for cinephiles. The in-person screenings, which started March 3 and run through Sunday, March 6, follow last year’s all-virtual program with a dozen or so diverse titles and showcases.

The event is book-ended by the narrative feature “Listen Before You Sing” and the doc “Free Chol Soo Lee,”, a 2022 Sundance selection about the U.S.-led movement to free a Korean immigrant after a wrongful conviction. Tickets: $15 per film or $65 for a full-fest pass. See the full schedule, live Q&As, and more at the Sie FilmCenter, 2510 E. Colfax Ave., at cdfilm.org or denverfilm.org.

Also this week: The Boulder International Film Festival, through March 6. Read a comprehensive preview at denverpost.com.

Growing STEM with “Girls & Science”

Through March 26. The eighth annual “Girls & Science,” a program of CBS4/KCNC-TV and Girls Inc. of Metro Denver, returned online late last month and continues through March 26 with another accessible slate of programs that help motivate girls to explore STEM careers.

“Jurassic World” stomps into Denver

Friday. Touring, animatronic dinosaur exhibits are a big deal nationally — and in Denver, which has hosted a few lately (including last fall’s “Jurassic Question”). But having the “Jurassic World” brand name will likely make for an even bigger showing.

“Jurassic World: The Exhibition,” based on the billion-dollar movie franchise, will give families a peek at the new Stockyards Event Center of the National Western Center March 4-Sept. 5. The 20,000-square-foot walk-through installation includes life-sized dinosaurs, interactive baby dinosaurs from the new “Camp Cretaceous” streaming series and themed environments.

Timed-entry tickets are $24.50 for kids aged 3-16, and $34.50 for those over 16 (free for 2 and under). Add $10 to those prices for “flex entry,” which allows entry at any time that day. 5004 National Western Drive. jurassicworldexhibition.com
