‘Ford v Ferrari,’ ‘Uncut Gems,’ ‘Judy’ Headed to Telluride Film Festival
The world premieres of James Mangold’s “Ford v Ferrari,” the Safdie brothers’ “Uncut Gems,” Edward Norton’s “Motherless Brooklyn,” Tom Harper’s “The Aeronauts,” Kelly Reichardt’s “First Cow” and Rupert Goold’s “Judy” will highlight the lineup of the 2019 Telluride Film Festival.
The festival announced its slate of films on Thursday, one day before the three-day event will kick off in the Colorado mountain town.Stars headed to the Colorado mountain town should include Matt Damon and Christian Bale for the auto-racing drama “Ford v Ferrari,” Adam Sandler for “Uncut Gems,” Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones for the period piece “The Aeronauts” and Renee Zellweger for the Judy Garland story “Judy.”Special tributes and Silver Medallion Awards will be presented to Zellweger, Adam Driver and director Philip Kaufman.Portions of Ken Burns’ upcoming documentary series, “Country Music,” will also be screened in Telluride, as will Agnes Varda’s final film, “Agnes by Varda,” Davis Guggenheim’s Bill Gates documentary “Inside Bill’s Brain” and Trey Edward Shults’ “Waves.”The three short films will include “Lost and Found” and “Into the Fire,” both by Orlando von Einsiedel, the Oscar-winning director of the short “The White Helmets.”The festival, which selects a carefully-curated group of about two dozen films, has also opted to showcase a number of films from this year’s Cannes Film Festival, including Pedro Almodovar’s “Pain and Glory,” Celine Sciamma’s “Portrait of a Lady on Fire,” Terrence Malick’s “A Hidden Life,” Kantemir Balagov’s “Beanpole” and Bong Joon Ho’s Palme d’Or winner, “Parasite.”Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story,” Fernando Meirelles’ “The Two Popes” and Lauren Greenfield’s “The Kingmaker” are among the films that will go to Telluride after premiering at the Venice Film Festival.
“Marriage Story” is the only film to be playing all four of the fall festivals – Venice, Telluride, Toronto and New York – while “The Kingmaker” is the only documentary to be screening at Venice, Telluride and Toronto.Telluride typically showcases a group of films that include many Oscar nominees-to-be, though its eight-year streak of screening the eventual Best Picture winner came to an end last year when “Green Book” skipped Telluride, premiered in Toronto and went on to win the top prize.
Of last year’s Telluride selections, only two, “Roma” and “The Favourite,” would receive best-pic nominations, though the 2018 selection also included Oscar winners “Free Solo” (documentary feature) and “First Man” (visual effects) and nominees “Cold War,” “Shoplifters” and “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”Also Read: Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones Soar Higher ‘Than Anyone Has Ever Been’ in ‘The Aeronauts’ Trailer (Video)Telluride screenings begin on Friday and end on Monday.The lineup:· The Aeronauts· The Assistant· The Australian Dream· Beanpole· The Climb· Coup 53· Diego Maradona· Family Romance, LLC· First Cow· Ford v Ferrari· Judy· A Hidden Life· The Human Factor· Inside Bill’S Brain· The Kingmaker· Lyrebird· Marriage Story· Motherless Brooklyn· Oliver Sacks: His Own Life· Pain And Glory· Parasite· Portrait Of A Lady On Fire· The Report· Tell Me Who I Am· Those Who Remained· The Two Popes· Uncut Gems· Varda By AGNÈS· Verdict· WavesAdditional programs:· Country Music· Women Make Film: A New Road Movie Through CinemaaShort films:· Fire In Paradise· Into The Fire· Lost And Found.Selections from guest director Pico Iyer:· Late Autumn· The Makioka Sisters· Mr.
