Telluride Film Festival #38: Who's coming to town and other important stuff?

[click “Play”, Gary Meyer talks about who’s coming to Telluride]

Once the vow of silence is lifted – now – and the world gets to know what’s in store at the 38th annual Telluride Film Festival, Friday, September 2 – Monday, September 5, the fun begins and not just on the silver screen. All around town.

Only the Telluride Film Festival goes to the great expense of importing films and talent from all over the world, because Festival directors – Julie Huntsinger, Tom Luddy and Gary Meyer – believe in the importance of establishing an artistic as well as screen presence. So this weekend, actors, directors, cinematographers, editors, producers as well as critics, distributors and buffs walk side by side on the streets or stand in line blabbing about films. Everyone shows up in Telluride because the event is regarded as a jewel among film festivals, sans hype or hoopla.

But who’s everyone?

To find out who you might be standing next to you in line, also about some of the sponsors and – because this is a grab bag post  – the poster artist, Maira Kalman, who’s not coming to town but is the center of an interesting story plus the student programs, click the “play” button and listen to Festival co-director Gary Meyer’s interview.
