Set in the 1950s, and an official Selection of the 35th Starz Denver Film Festival, Aviation Cocktail is loosely based on Higgins’ family history in aviation, and centers around three war vets dealing with rural life after the war. 

The film has only been screened in Denver a few times but will open for a full week run at the SIE Film Center on April 26th. Tickets can be purchased on the Film Center's website. Higgens and select cast will be present after the 7:15pm show on Saturday, April 27th! 

Alisha Sweeney sat down with Colorado native and writer/producer/director David Higgins to talk about his film The Aviation Cocktail on the eve of its Denver premiere last October. He brought along Wilson Helmericks to discuss composing the music.
