Vail Film Festival comes to town next week with over 90 films on the program.  In its 7th year, the festival continues to grow and for the first time some of the films and events will be hosted in Beaver Creek.  Celebrities you can expect to see around town include Festival Honorees Jane Seymour, Zach Braff and Dennis Haysbert.  There are also non-film events if you don't want to spend the weekend in a movie theatre like Opening & Closing Night parties, Filmmaker Receptions, award-winning screenplay readings, discussions panels, the Stella Artois Cutting Room Hospitality Lounge and Zacapa Rum Sipping Lounge. 

One of my favorite events from the past couple of years has been The Hotel Cafe Friday Night Concert.  The Hotel Cafe is a live music venue in LA which has become known for helping to establish careers of upcoming singer-songwriters.  A few years back, a handful of musicians from the venue were invited to the VFF because they had had hits on the Grammy-winning Garden State soundtrack.  They were so popular that they've been invited back every year since!  This year, they will play in Beaver Creek, but the atmosphere is always very laid-back/ cool/ coffeehouse-vibe which makes it easy to mix and mingle while enjoying the music. 

Lodge at Lionshead is proud to be a lodging sponsor again this year and we can't wait to check it out!
