Ben Sollee says a cello is not just an instrument; it's a cultural touchstone. Sollee first picked up the cello in the fourth grade, and continued his studies at a high school for performing arts and earned a degree in music from the University of Louisville, where he attended on a full-tuition scholarship. Despite his classical training, he disputed the idea that this type of music was the only way to play the cello, and instead he embraced all genres of music and storytelling in his unique style of playing. Early in his career, he toured with such renowned artists as Abigail Washburn and Béla Fleck.

“There are two kinds of film festivals: there are the mega-hyped, hoopla-infested selling circuses, and there is Telluride. It is extraordinarily exciting, in this age of the triumph of capitalism, to discover an event dedicated not to commerce, but to love. And if that sounds old fashioned and starry-eyed, so be it. 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 Oscar...
