New Belgium Brewing, maker of Fat Tire Amber Ale, is bringing its beer-toting, film-traveling, nonprofit-benefiting Clips of Faith show back to Boulder on Friday, June 29. The third annual Clips of Faith tour has hand-selected a variety of amateur films and will be serving its palate-elevating beers under a blanket of stars on the 29th Street Mall. Don’t forget to bring something to sit on – this showing is on a hard surface.
Since its inception, Clips of Faith has raised more than $91,000 for local philanthropic organizations. Last year, the Boulder stop had approximately 1,000 attendees and generated nearly $6,700 for Community Cycles, which is our partner again this year. Community Cycles is a nonprofit organization of bicycle enthusiasts whose mission is to educate and advocate for the safe use of bicycles as an affordable, viable and sustainable means of transportation and personal enjoyment within the community.
The Clips of Faith films embrace many genres, including comedic shorts, animation and environmental documentaries. Some of the selected films for the 2012 tour include: The Canning Queen of the Desert: Classie Parker, a tale about deep conversations in the kitchen; DamNation, highlighting the controversy over water rights in the west; and Foxy Shazam – Unstoppable, a film entirely created with old school theater trickery, puppeteering and black light.
“This is a great way to support your own community and revel in the celebration of artistry in many forms,” said Christie Catania, Clips of Faith manager-at-large. “We invite you to come try some of our harder-to find Lips of Faith beers alongside popular New Belgium classics, while enjoying delicious fare from local vendors.”
