    TELLURIDE's not festival 2020

    Telluride has published the entire list of its "not" festival 2020, which had to be cancelled due to the global pandemic. Here it is. Cannes was cancelled. Telluride was cancelled. Venice is going ahead, but with special screening arrangements. The same is true of Toronto, with 50 feature films instead of 200. For Telluride, a lot of the films listed below you could see - if you went to Venice. Except that American won't be able to go. See this Vulture article on how the various big festivals are dealing with the pandemic.

    47TH TELLURIDE FILM FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES FILM LINEUP FOR ITS CANCELLED 2020 EVENT

    Telluride Film Festival of Telluride, Colorado, started in 1974 by Bill and Stella Pence, Tom Luddy (of the Pacific Film Archive), and James Card of Eastman-Kodak Film Preserve and operated by the National Film Preserve, released today its official program selections for the now-cancelled Sept. 2020 event. The Festival which seeks to unite film enthusiasts, filmmakers and artists in celebration of cinematic excellence, was scheduled to take place over Labor Day weekend, September 3-7, 2020. The Festival previously announced its cancellation due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

    Representing twenty-five countries, Telluride's program includes twenty-nine new narrative and documentary feature films and twenty-three shorts. In addition, the Festival chose three distinguished artists to receive its Silver Medallion Award.

    "Though we aren’t able to present our program in-person as planned, we still want to announce the lineup to bring attention to these brilliant films,” said Telluride Film Festival executive director Julie Huntsinger. “We’ve listed everything we know about screening opportunities so that audiences may watch as many of these films as possible. The Festival will continue to do everything in its power to champion and promote this artform and the people who create it."

    Telluride Film Festival has proudly announced the following new narrative and documentary feature films for its main program.

    "Despite the fog of madness that's pervaded the lives of everyone inhabiting this spinning rock we call home, this year's Filmmakers of Tomorrow program is proof positive that both life and The Show will indeed go on,” said Academy Award-winning writer, director, producer Barry Jenkins. “Spanning numerous continents and forms and stylings, the group of shorts submitted to this year's festival was just as fine as ever and, to my delight, incredibly representative of the madness swirling in this most radical of times. As we move forward from the ashes of upheaval with a renewed focus on the shared experiences that unite us, this fantastic group of shorts illustrates that the ‘empathy machine of cinema’ is alive and well.”
