As I walked briskly toward the Sheridan Opera House to catch a tripartite program -- a screening of "Slow Food Story," a documentary about its founder, the charismatic Carlo Petrini, followed by the awarding of the inaugural Food, Inc. Movement Award to Alice Waters, and a lively and emotional panel discussion among Alice, the film's director, Stefano Sardo, Michael Pollan, and Berlinale head Dieter Kosslick -- I run into Davia Nelson, one of the Kitchen Sisters, walking briskly in the opposite direction. "Not going to Alice's program?!," I ask, surprised. "No, I wish I could, but I'm doing the Q & A with Nicolas Philibert, who I love," she says.

The 40th annual Telluride Film Festival just announced its lineup of movies. The Labor Day weekend fest will include the North American premieres of hotly anticipated movies like the Coen Brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis," as well as debuts of movies like Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" and Jason Reitman's "Labor Day."
This initial announcement isn't necessarily the final lineup of movies at the Colorado movie festival. Some other sneak preview premieres of films that will be shown outside of the main program will likely be announced soon. In honor of Telluride's 40th anniversary, there will be an extra day of prigramming, six guest directors including Don Delillo and Salman Rushdie, and a new Werner Herzog Theatre venue.
Here's the full list of movies in the 2013 Telluride lineup:
- "Before The Winter Chill" (directed by Philippe Claudel, France, 2013)
The 40th anniversary edition of the Telluride Film Festival unveiled its lineup, as per custom, just days in advance of its presentation in the mountains of Colorado. The five-day event begins tomorrow and will include several movies with Oscar ambitions, including the world premiere of Jason Reitman’s Labor Day, starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin.
The Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis (pictured above), Alexander Payne’s Nebraska, the Robert Redford movie All is Lost, and the erotic French film Blue is the Warmest Color, all of which premiered at Cannes in May, will make their American debuts at Telluride. »
