Telluride
The Telluride Film Festival has announced its call for entries in all categories, including student, short and feature-length films.

The submission period begins April 15, with the Film Entry Form available for download here. Shorts and student films must be received no later than 5pm on July 1; feature submissions no later than 5pm on July 15. 

The 40th anniversary edition of the fest is set per usual for Labor Day weekend August 29 - September 2. Passes for the festival, presented by The National Film Preserve, are available here. The new 650 seat Werner Herzog Theater will be ready for the festival, allowing for an extra day, for a full five days of special programming and festivities. This does not mean the festival is widening its pass holder base; the relaxed atmosphere will be preserved. As usual, the program will not be announced in advance, but this anniversary year will "be a grand reunion highlighting all the elements of the last forty years."

Exec director Julie Huntsinger states: "The 40th celebration is our chance to thank and honor the founders, filmmakers and audience who have helped us create such a beloved cultural institution. We are inspired every day by the cinematic genius that surrounds us and look forward to sharing the best of that on this very special occasion.”
