Telluride 2009

The 36th Telluride Film Festival starts tomorrow and wraps up on Monday. What's cool about Telluride is that it keeps its lineup a secret until just as the fest is getting started. More screenings are announced throughout the week, so there's never any knowing exactly what's in store at this one.

The festival has just announced its lineup today, and there are a lot of big titles showing this year, namely the Sundance champ An Education and Palme d'Or winner The White Ribbon.
  • A Prophet (D: Jacques Audiard, Germany/Austria/France)
  • An Education (D: Lone Scherfig, UK)
  • Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (D: Werner Herzog, US)
  • Bright Star (D: Jane Campion, UK/Australia/France)
