TFF is proud to honor the following three recipients with its Silver Medallion awards, given to recognize an artist’s significant contribution to the world of cinema:
• CLAUDIA CARDINALE - Italian film star Claudia Cardinale (8 ½, THE LEOPARD, THE PINK PANTHER) will receive the Silver Medallion followed by an onstage interview conducted by Hilton Als (Saturday) and Davia Nelson (Sunday). The program will include a screening of Valerio Zurlini’s GIRL WITH A SUITCASE (Italy, 1961).
• COLIN FIRTH – Telluride audiences will be the first to see British actor Colin Firth’s performance in THE KING’S SPEECH. The film will be preceded by a survey of Firth’s career (PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING, A SINGLE MAN), the presentation of the Silver Medallion and an onstage interview with Davia Nelson (Sunday) and Todd McCarthy (Monday).
• PETER WEIR – Filmmaker Peter Weir (WITNESS, THE TRUMAN SHOW, MASTER AND COMMANDER) will be presented with the Silver Medallion followed by an onstage interview with Leonard Maltin (Friday) and Scott Foundas (Saturday). A screening of Weir’s lost classic THE PLUMBER (Australia, 1976) and his latest film, THE WAY BACK, will screen during the Festival.
UCLA Film & Television Archive will receive this year’s Special Medallion award, which honors a hero of cinema - an organization or individual - that preserves, honors and presents great movies. Festival guests will be treated to a special program put together by Archive director Jan-Christopher Horak entitled: TREASURES FROM UCLA. Two films from the Archive will play elsewhere in the program: the 1927 film CHICAGO, recently discovered in Cecil B. DeMille’s vaults and restored by the UCLA Film & Television Archive, will screen with a live, original score performed by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra; and Stanton Kaye’s 1968 film, BRANDY IN THE WILDERNESS, a scheduled restoration by UCLA.
For the first time, Telluride Film Festival is presenting digital in all its venues. Dolby’s Digital Cinema server is being used throughout the four-day festival in its three largest venues. Dolby is facilitating a program of 3D featuring rare works from the 1890s through 2010 in RETOUR DE FLAMME IN 3D, curated and performed by Serge Bromberg with live piano and stories. Dolby 3D Digital Cinema technology, in conjunction with BARCO digital cinema projectors provides TFF with an efficient and flexible solution designed to deliver a superior 3D experience. Dolby, together with Cinedigm, Barco and Boston Light and Sound, has moved TFF forward into a completely state of the art film festival.

Guest Director Michael Ondaatje presents six films spanning the last four decades of the 20th century:
• THE ASCENT (d. Larisa Shepitko, U.S.S.R., 1977, archive print)
• CONFIDENCE (d. István Szabó, Hungary, 1980, archive print )
• FAT CITY (d. John Huston, U.S., 1972, archive print) followed by an interview with author Leonard Gardner
• HERE’S YOUR LIFE (d. Jan Troell, Sweden, 1966, restoration print from the Swedish Institute)
• THE HUSTLER (d. Robert Rossen, U.S., 1961, archive print)
• MOTHER DAO, THE TURTLELIKE (d. Vincent Monnikendam, Netherlands, 1995, archive print )
