The Downlow, Telluride Theatre’s local storytellers’ night, is honored to return for its third year to close out Mountainfilm.
This live storytelling event has become so popular, this year it will be held on the Main Stage of The Sheridan Opera House.

Produced by Laura Shaunette, this special annual edition features a combination of local storytellers and guests of Mountainfilm Festival.

Each Downlow has a different theme, May 28th’s being “Crossing Borders.” Storytellers will tell their tales accordingly.

This is a one-of-a-kind Telluride event, where non-performers and people you see each day, as well as guests of Mountainfilm, get up to bare their souls, recounting true events and offering up some outrageous, funny, touching and incredible stories for the community to enjoy.

Laura explains: “We listen to a lot of podcasts – especially storytelling podcasts. Telluride is a community full of storytellers, so we thought an event like this would do really well here. Storytelling is such a great way to connect with other people – we loved the idea of hosting a cozy evening for locals. Storytelling is such an organic way to get to know someone. We already feel like we’ve gotten to know so many new people through this process. There’s never a Downlow that occurs without the audience learning something new about someone in our community. I think the whole thing helps us to understand each other better, as well as to intentionally make time and effort to listen.”
