38th Telluride Film Festival draws to a close

Telluride Film Festival (September 2-5, 2011), presented by the National Film Preserve, draws to a close today following a spectacular weekend of diverse programming, surprise screenings and special guests.
Telluride Film Festival screened twenty-eight new feature films in its main program, six film revivals selected by Guest Director Caetano Veloso, nine Backlot programs, nine classics and restorations, 30 shorts and student films, and hosted nine seminars and conversations between festival guests.
The Telluride Film Festival Silver Medallion awards, given to recognize an artist’s significant contribution to the world of cinema, went to George Clooney, Pierre Étaix, and Tilda Swinton. The Special Medallion award, given to a hero of cinema that preserves, honors and presents great movies, went to British film magazine Sight & Sound with editor Nick James in-person to accept the award.
Audiences were treated to what has become a Telluride Film Festival tradition: Sneak Previews. Announced throughout the weekend and an unofficial part of its program, TFF presented guests with three surprise films: Jim Field Smith’s BUTTER (U.S., 2011) starring Jennifer Garner and Ty Burrell, all three of whom were in attendance to present the film; CRAZY HORSE (U.S., 2011), Frederick Wiseman’s portrait of Paris’s glamorous cabaret of the same name; and LE GRAND AMOUR, TFF Tributee Pierre Etaix’s lost masterpiece, never-before-seen in North America.
