40th anniversary of Telluride Film Festival to last 5 days

Telluride Film FestivalTo celebrate its 40th anniversary, the Telluride Film Festival will extend its usual four-day run to five days.

Telluride Film Festival, presented by the National Film Preserve, announces its 40th Anniversary set to run August 29 – September 3, 2013.

The 2013 edition will inaugurate a new venue, the 650-person capacity Werner Herzog Theatre, located in Telluride’s Town Park Pavilion.

The Werner Herzog Theatre will be situated in Telluride’s Town Park Pavilion and become the Festival’s most technologically advanced theatre accommodating 650 pass holders.

Telluride Film Festival is committed to present not only the best quality films but in the most state of the art manner.

TFF is also committed to maximizing pass holder enjoyment, valuing its intimate, relaxed atmosphere and will not be expanding its 2013 pass holder base.

“The 40th celebration is our chance to thank and honor the founders, filmmakers and audience who have helped us create such a beloved cultural institution,” said Telluride Film Festival Executive Director Julie Huntsinger.

“We are inspired every day by the cinematic genius that surrounds us and look forward to sharing the best of that on this very special occasion.”

The National Film Preserve is a not-for-profit arts and educational organization that annually presents the Telluride Film Festival.

Each year’s line-up is kept secret until opening day, but last year’s fest screened nearly 100 feature films, short films and revivals including Michael Haneke’s Amour, Ken Burns’ Central Park Five, and an unofficial sneak preview of eventual Best Picture winner Argo.
