The 32nd Telluride Film Festival starts today. Telluride Film Festival

Tributed guests include Mickey Rooney, the brothers Dardennes and Charlotte Rampling. A rarely seen Don DeLillo is this year's Guest Director. Many films will be projected reel to reel and a good time will be had by many. Unlike the last two years, no snow is expected!

I suppose fun will be had by those at the festical but at the expense of disrupting the locals and visiting tourists!! Yes, I have become to hate festicals of just about all types, especially film festicals.

Lordy, It seems like there is a film festical hapenning some place every second of the day.... Are ANY of them really special any more....... NOPE... well, ok... one is but its not held in this country.... They have become all too common place today like game shows on TV and seem to have lost the special aura they once used to have. In large cities festicals sometmes go completely un-noticed except by the few that may be running it or by those that have entered their films. I've noticed that locals of some towns they are held in(at least several of the ones I've been to) for the most part hate them and get very annoyed by them. Personally I'd rather be in a place like Telluride when there is no festical running... Telluride and places similar are much nicer places to be when operating as normal towns and not all goobered up by Hollywood... or other pointless festicals! Is it JUST Film Festicals that I dislike.... NO... There are towns that have so many festicals that they need to have a Festical of the Festicals just to sort all the Festicals out [Big Grin] [Eek!] [uhoh] [puke] ! Aspen is a good example of that and a town that has a Festical of some sort going every weekend and just about every time I go there. If you can hit a town like Telluride or Aspen when there is NO Festical they are very beautiful places (and areas) that one can really enjoy and appreciate.

Mark, you really need to see a doctor to close that spewing vitriolic wound. Or perhaps you've been to Park City once too often.

Actually its that "Festive" part of Festivals that Mark hates...He doesn't want anyone to be Festive.

He probably would hate the AFI/Silver then...it has a festival of some sort about every week and sometimes multiple festivals during the same week (This week will start the "DC Labor" Film Festival, next week will start the Latin American Film Festival). Then again, if it were not for the AFI/Silver, the people in the DC Metro area would not have nearly as large an exposure to the various types of films being made throughout the world and their signature festival..."Silverdocs" a documentary festival that seems to grow each year!

I can understand the dislike of over Festivalling though...it is kinda like the word "Sale" you see it so much that it loses its meaning.
