40th Telluride Film Festival
25th Student Symposium
August 28 - September 2, 2013
Imagine being a part of an exclusive give and take with filmmakers like Errol Morris, David Fincher, Danny Boyle, Alexander Payne, Werner Herzog, Michael Haneke, Laura Linney, Tilda Swinton, Ken Burns, Gus Van Sant, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Mike Leigh, Diablo Cody, Lynne Ramsay, Todd Haynes, Wayne Wang, Tamara Jenkins, Bertrand Tavernier, David Lynch, Im Kwon Taek, and Daniel Day-Lewis, to name just a few of the past participants in the Telluride Film Festival Student Symposium.
Now, don’t just imagine it—be there. It all happens this Labor Day Weekend in beautiful Telluride, Coloardo. In this 25th anniversary year, the Symposium is open to only 25 college and university students, no matter what your major. Yes, there’s an official “application,” but the primary requirements are to love film and be truly fascinated by it. All selected participants will receive a special Festival pass, free meals while in Telluride, and a travel stipend—the rest is up to you.
In celebration of the Student Symposium’s 25th anniversary, half of this year’s group will be made up of alumni who attended in previous years. For this year only, if you are chosen you will be able to interact with those who have come before you—it’s an exciting opportunity to learn directly from some of your predecessors how this program might affect your life!
If you’re chosen, the Symposium begins Wednesday afternoon and ends Monday night.
And in keeping with the TFF’s focus on providing a celebration of film for all people who love the movies, non-film majors are encouraged to apply.
Applications will be reviewed immediately following the March 18th deadline, initial e-mail notification of acceptance will be sent by May 1st, and all final results will be mailed by mid-May. Please do not call before May 1 for results. Due to the volume of applications, the March 18th deadline will be strictly adhered to, and incomplete application packets may be immediately precluded from consideration. Travel and lodging - which can be quite expensive - are solely the student’s responsibility.
