>Focus on a Colorado Production<


ROLLING PAPERS will premiere at the SXSW Film Festival on March 15th.
On January 1, 2014, recreational marijuana sales began in Colorado. With all eyes on ground zero of the green rush, The Denver Post became the first major media outlet to embrace it and appointed the world’s first marijuana editor. Legalization is not just an experiment for society, but a risk for the dying industry of newspapers to hedge its bets on the booming business of marijuana. Ricardo Baca sets out to report on history in the making with a team of straight-laced staff writers and fish out of water freelancers in tow for The Cannabist as it unfolds. Policy news, strain reviews, parenting advice and edible recipes are the new norm in the unprecedented world of pot journalism. For more information, visit the Rolling Papers Film Website

>Fiscal Sponsorship with the Denver Film Society<

Fiscal Sponsorship is a fundraising tool that serves as an alternative to a filmmaker establishing her own 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation to receive grants and donations. It allows a filmmaker’s non-commercial project to apply for funding from organizations requiring that the recipient have nonprofit status. In order to be eligible for fiscal sponsorship, you must be a current member of the Denver Film Society.
