Telluride Film Festival
Student Symposium Application Information
MA English--Film Studies student Robert Phillips went to Telluride in 2007: "The Telluride Film Festival was a life-altering experience. I saw films that will be on everyone's must-see list this year. It was not uncommon to walk past actors like Laura Linney, Sean Penn, Marsha Gay Harden, Jennifer Jason Leigh, or Daniel Day-Lewis. In the student symposium sessions, following the screenings, students were given the opportunity to speak directly with filmmakers like Werner Herzog, Tom Shadyac, Sarah Gavron, Todd Haynes, Marjane Satrapi, Peter Sellars, Shyam Benegal, Ken Burns, and Cristian Mungui. To be guided through the festival by the likes of NPR's Howie Movshowitz and UC Berkeley Professor Linda Williams was an experience that is difficult to express in words. Any student, whether undergraduate or graduate, who is interested in film should make every effort to attend the Telluride Film Festival. The way you think and feel about movies will be forever altered by the experience."
