Telluride Film Festival Announces It Will Go On With The “SHOW” – Plans Continue To Hold Important Oscar Precursor Event On Schedule

The Venice Film Festival has said they are bound and determined to do their event this year even in light of the continuing Coronavirus pandemic. Now the second wheel in the traditional Fall Festival Trifecta that launches awards season, Telluride , has sent an email to all who have signed up that they intend to move ahead and hold their annual Labor Day weekend festival, adding a day (as previously reported here) by starting on Thursday September 3rd rather than Friday, and by adding an extra charter flight from New York City to make it easier for East Coasters.

“We are not ignorant of the devastation facing the world. We feel the fear and distress too. This is why we are committed to observing all guidance as suggested by the consensus of voices of the scientific community with whom we are consulting now. This will not be a business as usual event. Things will look and feel very different,”  the Festival said. “We’re contacting you today to let you know we’re hard at work to provide a safe and joyous environment that will include an extra day to allow more space within and between screenings, along with all of the necessary safety tweaks and adjustments you’ve become very familiar with, regardless of where you call home.”
