Each winter, the streets of Denver are brought to life with Side Stories, an immersive and innovative community experience celebrating cinematic art on the urban exterior. During the large-format installation, short films from Colorado artists are projected onto a unique canvas: the neighborhood’s large, blank walls. Projection sites are selected to create a walkable art experience, drawing foot traffic through Colorado neighborhoods during quieter winter months.
In 2018 and 2019, COFTM worked closely with Mainspring, The Martin Family Foundation and RiNo Art District to plan, organize and execute Side Stories // RiNo. A smaller-scale pop-up event took place during August 2019 in the Alley of Denver’s Dairy Block.
