The 46th edition of the Telluride Film Festival, which often announces its hopes for the Oscars, announced its full program on Thursday morning and includes, as usual, an eclectic variety of films intended to put filmmakers in the meat paradise during the Labor Day weekend.
Among the world premieres at the Oscars, perhaps the most exciting is James Mangold's racing drama Ford v Ferrari, which stars Matt Damon and Christian Bale. Renee Zellweger embodies the immortal Judy Garland in Judy Zellweger will also be a tribute to the festival. Warner Bros, which has countless candidates in the fall, has chosen Telluride for the world's first Brookless of mother of a family, a film tour de force by Edward Norton, who plays, directs, produces and writes the adaptation of Jonathan Lethem's novel, the era of the 1950s.
Harvey Weinstein, inspired by "The Assistant & # 39; for its launch in Telluride; Filmmaker Kitty Green explains how and why she tackles an explosive subject
A24 often comes to Telluride, where they debuted the winner of an Oscar Piece and Moonlight. This year's offer includes the new Safdie Brothers movie Uncut gems with Adam Sandler, director of Trey Edward Shults' Romantic Drama waves, and Kelly Reichardt First cow.
Streaming services will come into effect as Netflix unveils their highly anticipated Wedding story which stars Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson, just after his debut in Venice. Driver receives another tribute to Telluride this year, which also includes its upcoming release of rival Amazon Studios, The report, the latter becoming the rare Sundance debut to also play Telluride. Netflix also premiered Fernando Meirelles' world premiere Both popes starring Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins playing Pope Francis and Pope Benedict, respectively.
And although the streamer holds the beginnings of his L & # 39; Irish for the New York Film Festival, Martin Scorsese will also come to the Rockies to participate in the tribute to the late Agnes Varda and her latest film, The Autobiographical Document Series Varda By Agnes. As for Amazon, it will also be the world premiere of Tom Harper's hot air balloon adventure. Aeronauts, bringing together Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, last seen together in the The theory of everything. Unlike Cannes, Telluride is clearly committed to the banners, despite the fact that some of these films, including the two titles of Amazon, are on display just two weeks before the launch of the service.
As usual, many documentaries will be on the bill. The usual awards highlighted in Telluride this year continue, especially with Linda Ronstadt: The sound of my voice, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April and is a must in my opinion. Telluride will also present many North American premieres at the Cannes Film Festival last May, including the Palme d'Or Parasite; beanpole; Pedro Almodovar Pain and glory; Terrence Malick's Fox Pickup A hidden life Portrait of a lady on fire; Romance with family, the inevitable last entry Werner Herzoz, the only person still alive to be named his theater at the Telluride Festival; and comedy The climb that Sony Pictures Classics has taken from its first Un Certain Regard in Cannes.
Although Telluride does not have a market, there will be non-distributing incoming securities that will also seek a sale. This is Dan Friedkin's highly entertaining and exceptionally well-crafted piece of art. Lyrebird, A true story unfolding a few weeks after the end of the Second World War, in which a soldier investigates a famous Dutch painter considered a Nazi collaborator. Claes Bang, Guy Pierce and Vicki Krieps take the lead in a movie that looks like a primer for Sony Pictures Classics or Fox Searchlight.
Another title for sale I've seen could be among the hottest in the city after its world premiere Friday night due to its inspiration from Telluride's base film (at least his films), Harvey Weinstein. The cinema to the truth L & # 39; wizard is the first "fictional" film by Australian documentary maker Kitty Green and her stars Ozark Emmy nominee Julia Garner made a remarkable performance as a junior assistant in an unnamed film production company, Tribeca, who discovers that the leader of the highly successful company for which she works is a sexual predator (never seen on the screen or mentioned by name). Among the producers is the former head of Focus Features, James Schamus (see my separate story and an interview with Green).
I will be there for the 46th edition of the Telluride Film Festival, which takes place this year from August 30th to September 2nd.
