Sneak screenings set for Friday

A pair of high-profile titles — “Prisoners” and “12 Years a Slave” — have been added to the Telluride Film Festival lineup as “sneak” screenings.

The dramas — both which are heading to the Toronto Intl. Film Festival next week — will screen Friday evening. Neither was on the lineup of 45 feature films announced on Wednesday but the fest has usually added several films once the festival starts, such as “Argo” last year.
