Though sometimes sadly overlooked, the Telluride Film Festival is an important part of the festival and awards season. Jason Reitman for one can attest to how big a boost the fest can be for a possible Oscar contender, and this year there’s a couple of very interesting films playing in the town over the next few days. Rumors have Ben Affleck’s film ‘Argo’ playing as well, but at the moment that movie hasn’t been announced. Flicks often are screened surprisingly here though, so stay tuned to see if it debuts or not. After the jump you can see what is playing there though, and I personally am really interested in the trio of ‘At Any Price’, ‘Frances Ha’, and ‘The Sapphires’, but that’s just me. Take a gander at the lineup below and see what you think…
