Telluride by the Sea unspools September 21-23

[From our friends at The Music Hall in Portsmouth. The Telluride by the Sea runs September 21-23, 2007.]

It’s coming on September and time for the acclaimed Telluride by the Sea, The Music Hall’s nine year long collaboration with the producers of the Telluride Film Festival. This unique and intimate Portsmouth event treats audience members from across the Northeast to an exclusive peek into the Telluride experience - packing one September weekend with the latest international cinema, private parties, great music, delicious food, and inspired conversations with sympathetic cinephiles of all ages, tastes and backgrounds.

Telluride by the Sea is a young relation to the 34 year old Telluride Film Festival held every Labor Day weekend in Telluride, Colorado in a tiny box canyon in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. In a carefully hand-picked selection of films, the festival in Colorado celebrates and commemorates the art of filmmaking, highlights the rare and unknown, pays tribute to the masters of cinema, presents new works by the world's greatest directors, and features world premieres of the latest in international cinema. Telluride by the Sea is always a new experience, a unique celebration of the rare and unexpected. Past Telluride by the Sea titles have included: Pedro Almodovar’s Volver in which Penelope Cruz, in an Oscar-nominated performance, lit up the screen, the ingenious and charming Russian film, The Italian, and Venus, featuring Peter O’Toole’s wonderful, Oscar-nominated performance.
