Tell me truly…are you thinking of bailing on the 2020 Telluride Film Festival? I’m weeping as I write this but staunch longtime attendees are telling me they’re on the fence and maybe tipping toward not going…maybe.

Some kind of local vote or referendum will happen on Wednesday, July 15th, or so I gather. A festival of some sort may happen between 9.3 and 9.7, but will Tom and Julie be able to present the usual array of hot award-season contenders?

I for one am ready and willing to risk…er, face the slight micro-possibility of a health challenge in order to experience a glorious renewal of that old time Rocky Mountain film religion…but that’s me.
