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.
Featuring the world premiere of Clint Eastwood‘s Sully, there’s also the Venice favorites La La Land and Arrival, as well as past festival highlights and some highly-anticipated dramas headed to Tiff, including Manchester By the Sea, Moonlight, Things to Come, Bleed For This, Toni Erdmann, Una, Neruda, and more. Check out the line-up below, along with links to our reviews where available.

“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
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.

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.
“We can’t become the criminals we’re fighting against…” Matthew Heineman’s almost accidentally fearless exposé of Mexico’s terrifying cross-border drug cartels opens with what looks like an outtake from Breaking Bad: an atmospherically torchlit scene of masked men cooking crystal meth, talking of American chemistry and local poverty, and how they will keep doing this “as long as God allows”, whatever the consequences. It ends with an equally cinematic encounter with a uniformed man whose chilling allegiances blur the lines between “good and evil” (drug prevention and creation) so thoroughly that, were this a fiction, the screenwriter would be fired for overplaying the Nietzschean parallels. But this is not fiction. On the contrary, it is horribly real, an urgent and alarming account of a crisis so hellishly
Directed by BAFTA and Emmy winner Angus Macqueen and Guillermo Galdos and produced by Simon Chinn (Searching For Sugar Man) and Andrew Mackenzie-Btty (Thriller In Manila), Drug Lord: The Legend Of Shorty chronicles the hunt for the notorious Mexican drug lord El Chapo (Aka Shorty). Shorty had been on the run for over a decade, during which time more than 80,000 Mexicans were murdered as a result of narco drug wars.

Guzmán escaped from prison in 2001 under dubious circumstances, having already established himself as a kingpin while still behind bars, and the Us-Mexican governments reportedly went into all-out assault mode. His free reign came to an end in February this year when he was re-captured, but filmmakers Angus MacQueen and Guillermo Galdos almost got to him first as they set
For film fans, SXSW gets louder as it winds down. The big films stop screening as the music crowd arrive, bringing with them sweat and booze and seven hundred types of noise. The bars of 6th Street throw their windows open, showing off the bands inside. Leftover cinefiles, queuing up outside the Alamo Drafthouse, get battered by an unholy hybrid of metal-country-electro-pop as they wait for the peace and quiet of the screening room.
At its best SXSW, which aims to celebrate new music, film and interactive technology, allows the mediums to play into each other. The best film at this year's festival is about a musician, former Orange Juice frontman Edwyn Collins. After suffering a stroke in 2005, Collins had to learn how to walk,
Protagonist Pictures is to launch international sales at the Efm this week on Angus Macqueen and Guillermo Galdos’ feature documentary The Legend Of Shorty, which will have its world premiere in the Documentary Spotlight section at SXSW on March 7.
Submarine is co-repping the film for North America with Protagonist.
Produced by the double Oscar-winning Simon Chinn (Searching For Sugar Man, Man On Wire) and Andrew Mackenzie-Betty (Thriller in Manila), the film focuses on ‘El Chapo’, aka Joaquin Guzman, the most powerful drug lord in history and one of the world’s most wanted men.
Macqueen and Galdos set out on a perilous journey into the Mexican sierra and the heart of ‘Shorty’s’ forbidden lands to try to find him.
Currently in post production, the film is produced by Red Box Films, Twofour and Ronachan
