The 45th Telluride Film Festival concluded on Monday after a weekend of films in the Rocky Mountains.
The festival, which began in 1974, is known for premiering movies that often make their way to the Academy Awards. Last year, “Moonlight” joined the Oscar race after its premiere at Telluride and eventually won Best Picture.
This year, the lineup was just as promising. Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma” and Marielle Heller’s “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”, among others, received notable buzz from cinephiles and filmmakers alike.
The Frame’s John Horn and KPCC critic Claudia Puig were at Telluride join us to talk about the festival and some of its highlights. We also look ahead to this weekend’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and discuss what’s to come.
