Every Labor Day Weekend Telluride plays host to the annual Telluride Film Festival. Now in its 45th year Telluride has become one of the must-see film events of the year.
Smaller and less flashy than the fall’s other major festivals in Venice, Toronto and New York, Telluride — which pointedly eschews paparazzi and red carpets — has nevertheless found itself thrust into the spotlight in recent years as a launching pad for Oscar glory. The festival has played host to eight of the last nine best picture winners, including “12 Years a Slave,” “Birdman,” “Moonlight” and “The Shape of Water,” which screened there last year alongside fellow eventual best picture nominees “Lady Bird” and “Darkest Hour.”
As you'd expect the air is thick with "Oscar buzz"...
Not only that, but the September weekend has also brought a dusting of snow to the high peaks around Telluride, the first of the season. Share your photos and be sure to tag us - on Instagram @TellurideSki / on Twitter @Telluride.
