Telluride Jazz Festival  Since 1977 Telluride’s majestic perch - high in the spectacular San Juan mountain range in southwest Colorado - has been the site of a musical odyssey combining the finest of nature and art. Each year the Telluride Jazz Society produces one of the most memorable festivals in the country if not the world. Its intimate format and opportunities for pleasure beyond the superb music - hiking, mountain jeep tours, visits to mining ghost towns, biking and more - bring an audience of up to 3,000 per day to this historic, one-of-a-kind Victorian town seen by most Americans only in TV commercials and snowboard ads. Combining both outdoor stages during the day with theater and club shows running all night long, this festival is not to be missed. The Telluride Jazz Celebration is the perfect family getaway.

Independent Film Fest While the Telluride Film Festival is the best of its kind in the world, it is *not* an independent film festival. As well - it requires 'premieres' of selected films. Telluride IndieFest showcases the best *independent* films and screenplays in the world and does not require films to 'premiere' at its event.  What This Means to the *Independent* Artist: There will be an even *larger* audience - and more Hollywood 'industry professionals' present.  Telluride IndieFest:  Dedicated to the spirit and advancement of independent filmmaking and screenwriting worldwide!

triples in size. Swells of passionate film enthusiasts flood the town for four days of total cinematic immersion, embarking on a viewing odyssey, blissfully spending entire days in flickering dark rooms.

Yet the Telluride family trusts that a unique experience will unfold.

The Telluride Film Festival is not just a picture show. It is tributes to luminaries who’ve pushed the medium forward; it is discussions with a film’s creator or the historian who champions it; it is running into filmmaker guests and sharing your thoughts; it is engaging in lively debate with a fellow passholder on the street or in line. Our audiences were the first in the world to partake of MY DINNER WITH ANDRE, to visit TWIN PEAKS, to witness THE CIVIL WAR and to learn the secret of THE CRYING GAME. We resurrected the silent epic NAPOLEON, and highlighted the genius of animator Chuck Jones. Book Hotel Here
