Welcome to September folks! I’ve been saying for a few weeks now that this new month means that it’s time for the fall festival season, and here’s some real evidence of it. Earlier today, the lineup for the 2016 Telluride Film Festival dropped, and it’s quite the slate. We now basically know the complete festival landscape now, with the contenders spread out before us. We’ll get into what’s playing shortly, but I just want to say how much I look forward to this part of the season, every single year. We emerge from the summer into an exciting fall, with 2016 looking to be no exception. Especially with how underwhelming the summer movie season was, festival season looks to be where film makes its mark in 2016. It’s full steam ahead towards Academy Award nominations now, and I couldn’t be happier. This is my cinematic happy place. »

Buoyed by its worldwide premiere at the ongoing Venice Film Festival – early reviews are praising the musical as an audacious, deeply romantic feature – Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash follow-up La La Land has booked its place at Telluride 2016.
The picture, one that stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in central roles, is one of the many soon-to-be-released features to be locked in for the imminent film festival, joining the ranks alongside Manchester By the Sea, Moonlight, Things to Come, Bleed For This and Clint Eastwood’s airborne thriller Sully. It is, without question, a fairly stacked lineup, which only has us all the more excited for the onset of the Toronto International Film Festival later this month.
But over the coming weekend, it is Telluride that will take center stage. Similar to La La Land, today’s unveiling confirms a second festival appearance for Denis Villeneuve’s intriguing sci-fi pic Arrival. »

New films from Clint Eastwood (“Sully”), Damien Chazelle (“La La Land”), Denis Villeneuve (“Arrival”) and Ben Younger (“Bleed for This”) are set to screen at this year’s Telluride Film Festival, commencing Friday, Sept. 2.
“Sully,” premiering Friday night, marks the first Eastwood film to screen at the fest since 1990’s “White Hunter, Black Heart.” He received a tribute that year as well, and hasn’t been back since he was on hand for Meryl Streep’s tribute in 1998.
The film stars Tom Hanks as commercial pilot Chesley Sullenberger, who miraculously water-landed Us Airways flight 1549 in the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, when a flock of geese struck the aircraft and disabled both engines.
Elsewhere, hot off the 2014 Oscar-winning sensation “Whiplash,” Chazelle will transition his vibrant musical to Telluride from an opening night bow at the Venice Film Festival, where it drew raves, before heading to Toronto next week. Also playing the »

The Telluride Film Festival has announced its lineup for the 2016 edition, which begins Friday. As usual, the exclusive Labor Day weekend gathering of industry insiders and midwestern movie buffs will offer a sneak peak at highly anticipated fall films, including several awards season hopefuls, alongside several favorites from the festival circuit, smaller discoveries and classic films.
Damien Chazelle’s vibrant ode to musicals of the past, “La La Land,” will head to Telluride fresh from the Lionsgate release’s successful opening night slot at the Venice Film Festival, while another Venice premiere, Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi “Arrival,” comes to Telluride courtesy of Paramount alongside a special tribute to star Amy Adams. Another tributee, Casey Affleck, will be in town with Sundance hit “Manchester By the Sea,” which Amazon famously acquired at the Park City gathering for a hefty price tag.

Film-maker Angus Macqueen had extraordinary access to one of the last uncontacted indigenous peoples for his new documentary. Here he tells of the struggles they now face on the border of Brazil and Peru
Footage of a man handing bananas to two naked men in the middle of an Amazonian river went viral in late June 2014. At the time, the Brazilians claimed it was a once in a generation event – that the moment of “first contact” was caught on camera. These were some of the last so-called “uncontacted” peoples left on the planet – men and women who live with no direct contact with the outside world. Experts suggest there are perhaps 70 such groupings left, numbering anything from 2,000 to 3,000 people in total, nearly all of whom live in the headwaters of the Amazon.
The emergence of this group of 35 of the Sapanahua tribe in 2014 has raised serious questions about how we should approach these people. »
