Telluride Film Festival has given into the reality of the coronavirus pandemic and continuing outbreaks across the nation and today announced it is cancelling the 2020 edition.
Considering the worsening situation in many parts of the country and the logistical challenges of just getting to the remote Colorado mountain location for many in the first place, the decision by Telluride toppers is not surprising. Word is the festival was waiting until the Town Council meeting on July 21 to officially give the fest a go or not, but TFF tells me that meeting was not a factor in to whether to proceed or not. The great majority of almost weekly summer festivals in Telluride have cancelled those gatherings this year.
