As the first film festival of national stature to hit Northern Colorado, the TriMedia Festival will also strike the record as the first competition to bring together world-wide independent film, TV pilots and theatre performances.

“We wanted this to be an annual event so we had to position ourselves nationally,” said Francie Glycenfer, festival co-director. “We had to do something unique.”

The festival, making its debut in the Lory Student Center, will run from Friday night at 7 p.m. until Sunday at a variety of locations across Fort Collins including the Lincoln Center, the Nonesuch Theater and Everyday Joe’s Coffee House.

Movies and TV shows such as “Tomorrow is Today,” and “Death of a Saleswoman” will feature actors, directors, filmmakers and producers in attendance with some available for questioning after the screening.

“Tomorrow is Today,” the opening movie premiering in the LSC Friday night, will feature lead actor Scout Taylor-Compton, known for her previous appearances in “Gilmore Girls,” “Charmed,” “Without a Trace,” “ER,” and “Sleepover.” Scout will be in attendance along with co-star Mark Hefti and director Frederic Lumiere.

“She does a marvelous job,” Glycenfer said. “She’s just wonderful.”

Saturday night will include a three-part series, “On the Wild Side” at the Lincoln Center. “Dreadheads,” the first film in the series, features those whose lifestyles revolve around music, in particular the Grateful Dead, and freedom. “The Legend of Flashpants,” movie number two, tells a haunted tale of a male strip cub. “Vern Meets Jane,” the last movie in the series, ironically tells the tale of a serial killer who picks up and kills hitch hikers and finds himself picking up a serial killer who hitchhikes and kills her drivers.

All events are $5 at the door for students, $10 for non-students. Passes and tickets for the events can be purchased at the Lincoln Center box-office at 221-6730 or online at fcgov.com/lctix.
