Telluride Film Festival

Wed, 08/31/2016 - 08:00
“There are two kinds of film festivals: there are the mega-hyped, hoopla-infested selling circuses, and there is Telluride.

The cinema was always in the business of gazing at stars.” – Salman Rushdie About The Telluride Film Festival The prestigious Telluride Film Festival brings together industry masters under the auspices of the majestic San Juan Mountains. It is nothing short of a magical weekend, a celebration of film, community, and creativity. The festival notoriously keeps its film schedule a secret, but you can bet that many of the films you will see will be at the top of your...
