About the Denver Film Society
Since 1978, the Denver Film Society has worked to promote the medium as both an art form and a civic forum, developing a program that includes year-round screenings, community outreach projects and renowned special events. It is in fact the only nonprofit organization in Colorado dedicated to engaging both its members and the public in an engaging relationship with and understanding of film and film culture.

The twin pillars of the DFS are the Sie FilmCenter, our year-round theater, and the annual Denver Film Festival. Now in its third decade, the Festival presents a 12-day roster of international screenings and red carpet premieres. In addition, the DFS organizes such popular annual festivals as Film on the Rocks, a cinema/concert series held throughout the summer at Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater.

Department Information
Originally built in 1946, the Aurora Fox Arts Center was Aurora's only "movie palace" serving the needs of a growing population and military personnel stationed at Fitzsimmons Army Hospital and Lowry Air Force Base.  Throughout the 1950's and 1960's the Fox Theater with its Art Moderne entrance and 61-foot neon sign was a popular destination for children and adults.  The 1970's, however, witnessed a period of decline for the Fox as new commercial areas opened and people began flocking to these new shopping centers with acres of parking and improved movie houses.  The fate of the Fox as a movie theater was sealed when a disastrous fire in 1981 caused extensive fire and water damage, but between 1983 and 1985, civic groups, the city of Aurora and private companies worked together to fund a restoration and rehabilitation of the theater.  The building reopened on March 8, 1985 as the Aurora Fox Arts Center, permanent home for the Aurora Fox Theater Company and rental home for several local performing arts organizations.
 
Today, the Fox is the grand dame of the city's recently established Aurora Cultural Arts District, and her sole resident arts organization is an award winning professional theatre company operated by the city of Aurora's Cultural Services Division.  The Fox (which is the abbreviated named for both the building and the city-run theater company in residence there) is a member of Actors' Equity Association, Small Professional Theater Tier 1.  The theater employs four full time staff and includes two performance spaces: a 230 seat proscenium theater and a 73 seat corner thrust black box theater. Operations include a main stage season of 5 fully produced shows, a children's theater program, various classes and guest productions.  The Fox is firmly committed to diverse and colorblind casting, culturally specific programming and the pursuit of innovation.

*The first screening of applications received will occur on Monday, June 26, 2017 and each Monday after until position is filled.*
