Telluride Film Festival comes to a close

Today marks the close of the 36th Telluride Film Festival, presented by the National Film Preserve. Twenty-four feature films played in the Festival’s main program, not including three Sneak Previews added throughout the four-day event. Telluride Film Festival’s celebration of art and film, set amongst the beauty of the Rockies, opened Friday, September 4 and closed today, September 7, 2009.

The following unannounced Sneak Previews screened at the 36th Telluride Film Festival:

Festival guests Nicolas Cage, Andrew Eaton, Michael Haneke, Julian Jarrold, Katie Jarvis, James Marsh, Helen Mirren, Carey Mulligan, Warwick Thornton and Anand Tucker participated in the Festival’s Conversations series, allowing Festival attendees to listen and participate in discussions ranging from cinema to culture to politics, and everything in between.

Seminar topics included: “Real Lives Becoming Reel Characters” with Christian Carion, Anne Fontaine, Michael Hoffman, James Marsh, Carey Mulligan, and Barbara Sukowa; “The Challenges of Portraying Complex Heroines on Screen” with Brenda Blethyn, Michael Lerner, Helen Mirren, Lone Scherfig, and Margarethe Von Trotta; and “The Edge of Humor: When Does the Laughter Stop” with Nicolas Cage, George Gittoes, Jason Reitman and Paul Schneider.
