Telluride 2017 Lineup Announced; Includes ‘Darkest Hour’, ‘Hostiles’, and More

The Venice Film Festival is already underway (be sure to check out Brian Formo’s reviews for Downsizing and The Shape of Water), and TIFF is almost here, but the lineup has now been revealed for the Telluride Film Festival. While it’s not the biggest festival, it kind of functions like a preview night for some TIFF movies and lets Oscar bloggers get a jump on some of the movies that could be major players in the awards season. While there’s crossover between the festivals (Downsizing and The Shape of Water are playing at all three, for example), it will be interesting to hear what buzz comes out of Telluride. Eight of the last nine Best Picture winners played at Telluride, so it’s a festival that’s worth keeping an eye on.

Here’s the full line-up via Variety. The 2017 Telluride Film Festival runs from September 1 – 4th.
