For over 20 years the Telluride Film Festival has presented students with the opportunity to experience the Festival as it was initially intended—a celebration of film as an art, a festival of discovery and rediscovery, and a place to share your love of film with others who feel just as passionately as you do.
You don't need to be a film student. All you need is a consuming passion for film. Seize the opportunity to immerse yourself in a direct and intimate dialogue with some of the greatest filmmakers out there, joined by peers that share your enthusiasm.
The goals of the Festival's education programs are as follows:
The Student Symposium is designed for college undergraduates and grad students; all majors are welcome. Fifty students, from around the globe, are chosen to participate in a rigorous five days of screenings and cloistered seminars. Participants receive a special festival pass, a travel stipend and special access to the likes of David Fincher, Danny Boyle, Laura Linney, Sean Penn, Ken Burns, Gus Van Sant, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Mike Leigh, Diablo Cody, Todd Haynes, Wayne Wang, Tamara Jenkins, Bertrand Tavernier, David Lynch, Im Kwon Taek, and Daniel Day Lewis.
The City Lights Project invites high schools to participate. Two dozen students and teachers attend the event and gain exposure to great films and filmmakers in a life-changing experience similar to the Student Symposium.
Student films are a part of every Telluride Film Festival. New student directors are given the opportunity to have their works shown in the company of other great talents and emerging artists.
Student Prints was the original Filmmakers of Tomorrow program, initiated in 1993. In that first year's program were included films by actress Daryl Hannah, former TFF Student Symposium attendee Simeon Hunter, and four other student directors. Since that time, the program has expanded considerably. In 2008, 300 films were submitted from such countries as South Africa, Hong Kong, Poland, Sweden, Bulgaria, Denmark, and the Netherlands, as well as the United States.
