Telluride Film Festival: September 2 - 5, 2017

The Telluride Film Festival will feature more than 50 programs screened in ten venues. The most popular films, according to passholder demand, are repeated throughout the weekend. The Festival is best experienced by purchasing one of the four passes, all of which cover the entire weekend from beginning to end and must be presented for admission to the venues and events.

Films of Ang Lee, David Cronenberg, Pedro Almodóvar, and Errol Morris have debuted in Telluride. Ken Burns’ THE CIVIL WAR first found acclaim there. Danny Boyle, Andrea Arnold, Michel Hazanavicius, Marjane Satrapi, and Alexander Payne showcased their works high in the peaks of Colorado before they went on to win awards and broader recognition.

The Better Angels Society hopes to see you there!
