The Starz Film Festival Denver is now showing! Be sure to keep an eye out for the KD Kanopy banners we did for the Starz Film Festival and their sponsors. There are so many events and films showing during this festival, it’s hard to know where to begin. It kicked off November 12th and runs through November 23rd. So that means you still have plenty of time to catch a show!
We printed banners for one of the Festival’s sponsors – Kronenbourg 1664. Kronenbourg 1664 is known for its golden hues and slight bitterness from the best hops around. French master brewers have been brewing this beer for over 350 years. It is often referred to as the best French beer in the world.

The Starz Film Festival Denver is in it’s third decade and is built on the pillars of the foundations vision.
