Thanks to COVID-19, the 2020 Telluride Film Festival has been canceled. The festival organizers made that decision a few weeks ago. But just because the fest isn’t actually happening this year, doesn’t mean they can’t still shine a light on the movies that would have played there if this godforsaken pandemic hadn’t thrown the world into turmoil.

“Though we aren’t able to present our program in-person as planned, we still want to announce the lineup to bring attention to these brilliant films,” Telluride Film Festival executive director Julie Huntsinger said in a statement. “We’ve listed everything we know about screening opportunities so that audiences may watch as many of these films as possible. The Festival will continue to do everything in its power to champion and promote this art form and the people who create it.”

Check out the full list of film programming for this year’s canceled festival, including new movies starring Kate Winslet, Anthony Hopkins, Frances McDormand, and more. Read More »
