In its 37th year, the Telluride Film Festival announces their 2010 lineup one day before the fun begins, including special tributes to this year's Silver Medallion recipients Colin Firth, Italian/Tunisian actress Claudia Cardinale (8 ½) and director Peter Weir (Master and Commander, The Truman Show, Dead Poets Society) in recognition of their contribution to the world of cinema. EDITOR'S UPDATE: Weir will unveil his new film, The Way Back, which just landed distributor Newmarket, and is not playing any of the other fall fests, so this is a real coup for Telluride. Darren Aronofsky is also winging from Venice to Colorado to show Black Swan, and Searchlight is also expected to bring Danny Boyle's 127 Hours; he had good luck debuting Slumdog Millionaire there.

In addition to twenty-four new feature length films (to be presented by the filmmakers), thirteen documentaries and twenty-five shorts, six curated programs from the festival's guest director Michael Ondaatje will be presented. Among the main program entries are Mike Leigh's Cannes holdover Another Year, world premieres of Tom Hooper's The King's Speech with Colin Firth (TWC) and Mark Romanek's Never Let Me Go (which Searchlight is taking to Toronto) and France's The Princess of Montpensier from director Bertrand Tavernier. Audiences can also expect to be surprised with some "Sneak Previews" over the course of the festival, which runs September 3 to 6.
