New This Year: (RED) Vision Short Film Category Bono (front man of U2) and Bobby Shriver are continuing their quest to save Africa through their (RED) organization. As such, they’ve partnered with the Vail Film Festival and created a category for which filmmakers are asked to explore the core values of (RED) through a three-to-10- minute film that uses one of these two (RED) themes: “We are the people we’ve been waiting for” and “Be a good-looking Samaritan.” The films are also supposed to be optimistic, smart, irreverent, and authentic -- not elitist, violent, overtly political, and angry. Guess that means Michael Moore is out.

A Nice Touch: Activities are scheduled for the late afternoon and the evening, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the deeply discounted ski tickets available and enjoy the snow during the day.
