DI: Yes that poster. I noticed Tel too and was wondering if that's where they got this dumb idea from. Nobody outside of the most pretentious American film industry types give a shit about a festival you can get to on horseback, but brilliant of NYFF to draw inspiration from it. It fits right in with the mission of Film Society or whatever they're trying to rebrand themselves as these days. Man do I have a lot of thoughts about that fiasco but 'tis unwise to speaketh outloud, alas.
Hey guys, I've been graduated to a pretentious American film industry type!

In all seriousness, no one but hardcore cinephiles and film industry types give a shit about any of these festivals, and Telluride is one of the half-dozen most high-profile in the world, so I'm not sure what you're trying to get at there.

Also, based on what you wrote, I don't think you clicked on the link, because I wasn't talking about this year's Telluride poster.

I did click, but it went to another thread on the forum which then linked to Tel's website.

You're mostly right, but NYFF is meant (aspires) to be a public event far more than most of the others. What's happened with TIFF (sold out mostly) and NYFF (struggles at time to give away tickets) the last decade is an interesting study.

And let's just say as a person who deeply cares about film at Lincoln Center I think they have room for improvement.

The poster I was trying to point you to was in the spoiler box.

HA!!! Throw in somebody yodeling "youwho is there anybody out there?" and we'd have the perfect Telluride poster.

Even more excitingly that HP Lovecraft adaptation of The Color Out Of Space starring Nicolas Cage is Richard Stanley's return to fiction feature filmmaking after the notorious mid-90s Island of Dr Moreau debacle.

New announcements for Toronto, including films from Kore-eda, Malick, Hawley, Andrews, Shults, Andersson, Loach, and more

Not going to lie: lots of heartbreaking news in here for me re: Telluride. I’m going to have to go lie down for a while.

Final Telluride Speculation: Most of the melodrama in my previous post was rooted in Toronto's initial listing of Malick's A Hidden Life as a North American premiere, which would probably have cost me my last best chance to see maybe my favorite living filmmaker in person, but after about an hour they updated it to denote a Canadian premiere, so: much happier now! Still bummed about missing out on several other really intriguing titles, the new Kore-eda especially, but this should still be an exciting and diverse festival.

Confirmed? (in order of interest):
A Hidden Life (Malick)
Parasite (Bong)
Motherless Brooklyn (Norton)
Uncut Gems (Safdie Bros.)

First Cow (Reichardt)
Waves (Shults)
Verdict (Gutierrez)
Ford vs. Ferrari (Mangold)
The Two Popes (Merielles)
The Aeronauts (Harper)
Varda By Agnès (Varda)
Judy (Goold)

Major Eliminated Possibilities:
About Endlessness (Andersson)
Atlantique (Diop)
Bacurau (Dornelles / Mendonça Filho)
Liberté (Serra)
Lucy in the Sky (Hawley)
Synonyms (Lapid)
The Traitor (Bellocchio)
The Truth (Kore-eda)
Vitalina Varela (Costa)
Wasp Network (Assayas)
Wild Goose Lake (Diao)
Young Ahmed (Dardennes)
Zombi Child (Bonello)

10 Remaining Most Wanted:
1917 (Mendes)
Ad Astra (Gray)
Antlers (Cooper)
Dry Run (Haynes)
Little Joe (Hausner)
Little Women (Gerwig)
Nomadland (Chloe Zhao)
Queen + Slim (Matasoukas)
The Report (Scott Z. Burns)
