2019 Telluride Film Festival Lineup Announced, ‘Uncut Gems,’ ‘The Aeronauts,’ ‘Judy’ & ‘The Report’ Among Selections

From Cannes award winners to big premieres, the Telluride program is ready to launch a new awards season.

The 46th Telluride Film Festival announced its complete festival lineup Thursday. Selections include Tom Harper’s “The Aeronauts,” the Renée Zellweger vehicle “Judy,” Terrence Malick’s “A Hidden Life” and the Cannes award-winning “Portrait of a Lady on Fire” from Céline Sciamma.

Benny and Josh Safdie’s new film “Uncut Gems,” their follow up to 2017’s feature “Good Time,” will see its world premiere at Telluride. The film puts comedian and actor Adam Sandler front and center in a crime drama ahead of its Toronto International Film Festival premiere September 9. Other titles slated for the Colorado festival include Oscar-winning director Pedro Almodóvar’s “Pain and Glory,” the film that won Antonio Banderas the top acting prize at Cannes earlier this year and a straight shot into the awards chatter. The late but great Agnès Varda will have her reflective last project, “Varda by Agnès” screening at the festival.

Telluride Film Festival takes place Friday, August 30 – Monday, September 2, 2019. Find the program lineup below.
