HOWIE Movshovitz occupies an empty table at the Tattered Cover LoDo. Lost in thought, he pays scant attention to patrons lining up for their morning espresso. But people notice him. “Hey,” they whisper, “isn’t that Howie Movshovitz?”
Movshovitz’s portfolio overflows like an oversized container of hot buttered popcorn. The film critic for Colorado Public Radio contributes features on National Public Radio, directs film education at UCD’s College of Arts & Media and is artistic director of Denver’s Silent Movie Festival.
One of two faculty leaders at the Telluride Film Festival’s Student Symposium, the former Denver Post film reviewer curates the monthly Tattered Cover-CPR film series and was instrumental in establishing the popular Starz FilmCenter.
