Telluride Film Festival Travel Study

This three-week course which focuses on writing about film (reviews, articles, etc.) begins on the UCSB campus and culminates with four days of film viewing and special sessions at the prestigious Telluride Film Festival (TFF) in Colorado.

The Telluride Film Festival is one of the most prestigious in the U.S. It offers over thirty different programs with films chosen from new releases, both foreign and domestic, retrospectives and themed selections. Unlike many other festivals, the target audience is not Hollywood insiders but film lovers who come for the opportunity to be the FIRST to see next year’s Oscar contenders or to catch films that might not get distribution, and to meet and mingle with, directors, actors and writers etc. Because of the festival’s short time span and broad range of topics, students will have a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in film.
