Loft Film Fest: "I Am Big Bird"

Posted By on Thu, Oct 16, 2014 at 4:00 PM

We didn't have room in this week's story to touch on all the great films this weekend at the Loft Film Fest, but one documentary that has caught my eye is I Am Big Bird, featuring Carroll Spinney, who has performed the role of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch since 1969.

Zach Breneman tells The Range: "Sesame Street pretty much molded the childhoods of Generation X and the Millennials. What’s great about this documentary is that it traces the history of a cultural touchstone through the eyes of a really good person. You will fall in love with Carroll Spinney like you did with Big Bird."

I Am Big Bird plays at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 19.

The Loft Film Fest kicks off tonight with an appearance by Larry McMurtry and a screening of The Last Picture Show. The schedule for the whole fest can be found here.
