The Telluride Film Festival, a four-day whirlwind of cinematic exhibition 8700 feet above sea level, lit up Colorado this past weekend. The festival showcases a number of promising films as they emerge onto the scene for the coming fall, and Facets’ own Milos Stehlik is on the Board of Governors. We’ve compiled some reflections and overviews from those who attended to give you a taste of what went on:
  • A. O. Scott sums up the highlights of the festival, including Peter Weir’s The Way Back, Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours, Michelangelo Frammartino’s Le Quattro Volte, and Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, here.
  • John Horn discusses this year’s Telluride trend towards films with true-to-life backgrounds here.
  • Facets staffmember Suzi Doll reflects on the starry allure Telluride bestows upon directors here.
  • Read Tim Appelo’s list of superlatives, including Biggest Controversy and Best Hallucination, here.
  • See the program guide, with descriptions of all the showings and festivities, here.

Based on all this, which films are you most excited to see in the coming months?
