Academy Screenings

Aspen Film

At the 28th annual Academy Screenings, which run Saturday through Tuesday, Aspen audiences can catch films likely to be Oscar contenders this year.

The festival opens Saturday with “Bombshell,” starring Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie as news anchors who came forward about sexual harassment by Fox News creator Roger Ailes.

While that hit theatres in December, Aspen Film’s executive and artistic director Susan Wrubel says Academy Screenings offers an early look at a number of other films.
