Telluride

Each Labor Day weekend, the tiny mountain village of Telluride, Colorado triples in size. Swells of passionate film enthusiasts flood the town for four days of total cinematic immersion, embarking on a viewing odyssey, blissfully spending entire days in flickering dark rooms. With only an appreciation of celluloid to guide them, these devotees flock to the show, year after year. Why? Blind faith. They don’t reveal the program until everyone lands in town. Yet the Telluride family trusts that a unique experience will unfold.

The Telluride Film Festival is not just a picture show. It is Tributes to luminaries who've propelled the medium forward; it is candid discussions with a film’s creator or the historian who champions it; it is discovering that the person in line behind you made the film you just enjoyed; it is engaging in lively debate with every manner of film lover in the summer sun of a Colorado afternoon, always minutes away from a new exhibition. Telluride Film Festival audiences were the first in the world to laugh with JUNO, to observe THE LIVES OF OTHERS, to visit BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, to learn the secret of THE CRYING GAME, to experience BLUE VELVET, and to witness THE CIVIL WAR. They resurrected the silent epic NAPOLEON, and highlighted the genius of animator Chuck Jones.

The Telluride Film Festival take great pains to remain not a competition, but a celebration of the best in film — past, present and future — from all around the world. This is one weekend immersed in an unabashed carnival of film: viewing, breathing, eating, and talking cinema. This is The SHOW.

This was our first visit to...

This was our first visit to TFF and we loved every ounce of the festival! Highly recommend!!! We look forward to next year!!! Thank you to all for wonderful hospitality!

We are so glad you enjoyed...

We are so glad you enjoyed your time! The TFF is one of the many treasured festivals we have in Telluride during the summer. We love hearing things like this!

We too were first time ' film...

We too were first time ' film festival' attendees and needless to say we are planning to be at the 2014 event.

From the ambiance and friendliness of the town, to the great panels ( especially directors) , films of all types - foreign, documentary and first releases big screen- the array was dizzying. We were lucky to make this trip with veterans last year.. or would have been somewhat confused about how it all works. We did find ourselves running and a bit out of breath when having to make it from one end of town the Werner Herzog ---to the the Pierre in order to get in line!

I appreciate that patrons don't have to wait in line at all.. .but do feel that line goers don't always get the fairest shake on the ' must see's . Maybe someday I'lll be able to afford those tickets -- but for now, I'll go the route of the cue.

The cue systems has one other feature that is an odd benefit. Meeting new people. Some truly memorable connections were made while waiting for our cue cards - and I hope to see some familiar faces again in 2014.

We are traveling to Telluride from the DC area.. so it's a long haul, but once you arrive in town - the majesty of Ajax, the inadvertent rainbows and the friendliness of the town make the trek worth the work. Of course being just a few people away from Ralph and Robert didn't hurt either. It's wonderful to honor such talent in highly respectable way that allows these talents privacy.

Thank you so much for you...

Thank you so much for you wonderful comment! We are so glad to see you will be joining us again! Please let us know if we may be of any help during your time here!
