Nine Movies. Three Days. One Weekend of the Best Cinema! Movies fresh from their debuts at the 46th Telluride Film Festival in Colorado will be on screen at The Music Hall as Telluride by the Sea gets its 21st year underway.
ABOUT THE TELLURIDE FILM FESTIVAL
The Telluride Film Festival has been, for the last 45 years, a celebration of the art of film: honoring the great masters of the cinema, discovering the rare and unknown, bringing new works by the world’s greatest directors and the latest in American independent film to a small mountain town in Colorado. The New York Times called Telluride “the smallest, most original, and most stimulating of the major festivals,” while Entertainment Tonight simply said it was “the world’s best festival.”

With its charming mix of history, salt air, and film lovers, Portsmouth buzzes when Telluride by the Sea arrives. The streets are filled with people stopping one another to talk about the films, the restaurants are jumping. It’s a moving party!”
