“Aspen Reel Life” Presents aspenFilm Academy Screenings

Did you know that aspenFilm is the ONLY festival to show Oscar worthy films to the general public and Academy members before the films have been released? I actually consider that reason enough to move here!

You know that feeling you have when you finally make it to a movie that had great reviews? You’re sitting there all alone, or with a friend, it doesn’t matter. Your phone is off and there is nothing that can touch you for the next two hours, except for the story you are about to see. The lights go down and you become a voyeur into another world as your life fades away.

Oh sure, there are other things in life that get my heart rate up, like catching the first gondola on a 6”+ powder day or packing just lingerie for a weekend trip away with my husband or landing in New York City with a best friend just in time for happy hour or sharing a special moment with a child, but movies? Theater? Take me there, any time, any hour. I’ll watch three in a row if possible and god forbid I should miss the previews.

Way back when I worked for  aspenFilm it was a given by my family that I would be gone, solid gone, during the festivals and Academy Screenings. As I moved into my next job of film production with Dede Brinkman, my old friend got pushed to the wayside. When making films there is no time to actually watch films, but now I am being pulled back in again, and I’m excited to bring all of you in as well.

The 20th Aspen Film Academy Screenings are coming to Harris Concert Hall this December 22nd, 2010 – January 1st, 2011 and I am diving in and watching some of the films that I missed during the aspenFilm festival back in September.

It’s been too long since I have enjoyed a big, beautiful film and I refuse to go to an Oscar party without having seen Nicole Kidman in Rabbit Hole, although I’m worried whether I can emotionally hold myself together. I also must see The King’s Speech with Colin Firth performing as a stuttering King George VI and I won’t miss Barney’s Vision, a screen adaptation of Mordecai Richler’s prize-winning novel. And for all of you swooners of Javier Bardem, he’s back in the film Biutiful.

For a sneak preview of more of the films being showcased, visit the aspenFilm Academy Screenings website. How lucky we are to have the Academy Screenings brought to us here where we can go straight from the ski mountain into the movie theater?

I’ll see you at the movies, but don’t talk to me until the movie is over pleasssse!

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
