“The Telluride Film Festival was definitely the catalyst for getting people interested in SLING BLADE. It was the World Premiere. I love the people there and the noncompetitive atmosphere. It’s a smoothly run festival and it’s all about the films and it’s for people who really love movies.”
– Billy Bob Thornton
What are the prizes? There are none. The real prize is to be accepted from hundreds of entries as one of approximately 15 shorts and 30 features that will be showcased at the Telluride Film Festival. That’s right — once your film is invited to join the festival, by the time the event rolls around, you can stop biting your nails and enjoy the company of some of the best directors in the world.
