Is this the Telluride lineup?

I was sent, from a usually reliable source, a list of the films that will be appearing at the Telluride Film Festival at the end of the month. I emailed a contact I knew from the Telluride Film Fest to confirm if this is more or less the lineup. No answer back as of yet, but you can rest assured that 95% of these films are going to be selected based on the TIFF and Venice lineups alone.


Arrival, Denis Villeneuve
Bleed For This, Ben Younger
The B-Side, Errol Morris
Defying the Nazis, Ken Burns
Fire at Sea, Gianfranco Rosi
Frantz, Francois Ozon
Graduation, Cristi Mungiu
Into the Inferno, Werner Herzog
Journey Through French Cinema, Bertrand Tavernier
La La Land, Damian Chazelle
Manchester By The Sea, Kenneth Lonergan
Maudie, Aisling Walsh
Moonlight, Barry Jenkins
Neruda, Pablo Larrain
Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer, Joseph Cedar
The Red Turtle, Michael Dudok De Witt
Toni Erdmann, Maren Ade
Una, Benedict Andrews
Wakefield, Robin Swicord
Things to Come, Mia Hanse Love

I`m surprised that Clint Eastwood's Sully has such a low-key release date that almost makes it impossible to get into TIFF or Venice, but Telluride could have been a possibility. Martin Scorsese's Silence, James Ponsoldt's The Circle and Stephen Gaghan's Gold are more likely NYFF secret screenings although we don't even know if the Scorsese will even come out this year. EW's Fall Movie Preview issue does NOT include Silence it in its pages, which says a lot. Not even a TBD.

EDIT: Looks like Michael Patterson, who has a telluride blog, has the exact same LIST

Looks a lot like my Ten (Plus) Bets list from my post on Friday.
