Telluride Film Festival Announces Lineup for Upcoming Weekend

SullyWarner Bros. Pictures

One of the industry’s smaller events, the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado, is set to commence tomorrow, Friday, September 2. There are several big movies with planned screenings at the fest, including Clint Eastwood’s Sully, which marks the first time the director has screened a film at Telluride since the 1990s; the buzzy sci-fi film Arrival from the gifted Denis Villeneuve; and La La Land, which has been receiving enormous amounts of praise since its premiere at the Venice Film Festival.

There will also be special tributes at the festival for Amy Adams (Arrival), Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea), and director Pablo Larrain (Neruda). The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, which earned Affleck an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor will kick off the weekend-long event with an outdoor screening in Elks Park on Thursday night.

Festival director Julie Huntsinger wanted to screen the film when it first came out in 2007 but due to various complications, they weren’t able to.

While Telluride is a decidedly smaller festival than some others, it is still a launching pad for Oscar hopefuls and reactions coming out of the weekend will be a good place to start theorizing about contenders for the February award show. The 43rd annual Telluride Film Festival runs September 2 – 5.
