One Weekend of the Best Cinema! Movies fresh from their debuts at the 48th Telluride Film Festival in Colorado will be on screen at The Music Hall as Telluride by the Sea gets its 22nd year underway.

ABOUT THE TELLURIDE FILM FESTIVAL

The Telluride Film Festival has been, for the last 48 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.”

ABOUT TELLURIDE BY THE SEA

This unique and intimate Portsmouth event treats audience members from across the Northeast to an exclusive peek into the Telluride experience – packing one September weekend in Portsmouth with the latest international cinema, private parties, great music, delicious food, and inspired conversations with other cinephiles of all ages, tastes, and backgrounds.
