A new venue for Telluride

Backlot showcase to debut at 34th edition

The Telluride Film Festival will unveil a new venue and showcase dubbed Backlot at the 34th edition of the fest in the Colorado Rockies.

Backlot, a screening room built into Telluride’s Wilkinson Library, was created by fest co-directors Tom Luddy and Gary Meyer in an effort to give festgoers a “behind-the-scenes look (at) the past, present and future of cinema.”

Ten films will screen at the venue during the fest, which runs Aug. 31-Sept. 3.

Backlot will also feature a special exhibit on loan from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, “Erich von Stroheim: A Life Discovered,” about the Austrian helmer and actor who first made his mark in Hollywood in the silent era.
