BIFF Photo Gallery Six -- Jen McGowan

Jen McGowan poses with Pearl Street Mall regular Bruiser, the World's Biggest Dog (we think Bob Aiken is around there somewhere.)
Director Jen McGowan, who visited the Boulder International Film Festival and took home the award for Best New Filmmaker for her short narrative, "Touch," was kind enough to share her photos from the weekend with us. Thanks, Jen! Here is a selection (captions by Brad Weismann; photos by Jen McGowan save for those in which she appears):

Long but cheerful lines were a rule of thumb at BIFF 2011.
