The Cannes Film Festival in July reignited the buzz which has traditionally surrounded the top tier of international film festivals. Now, a lineup of fall festivals is looking to build on that momentum.
The Venice Film Festival is taking place from 9/1 to 9/11 and will feature a number of awards-worthy films from famous auteurs such as Pablo Larraín’s “Spencer”, Pedro Almodóvar’s “Madres Parallelas” and Jane Campion’s “Power of the Dog”. The Telluride Film Festival is also taking place this weekend from 9/2 to 9/6, set in the bucolic mountain village of Telluride, Colorado. It features a number of high-profile domestic productions including Kenneth Branagh’s “Belfast” and Reinaldo Marcus Green’s “King Richard.”
