Guy Maddin, wife Telluride's guest directors

  • Print

WINNIPEG director Guy Maddin and his wife, Los Angeles-based film writer Kim Morgan, were named guest directors of this year's Telluride Film Festival.

The festival, which takes place in Telluride, Colo., from Aug. 29 to Sept. 1, helped launch the directorial careers of Michael Moore, David Lynch and Ken Burns.

"More than any other festival, Telluride is driven by the sheer love of cinema -- discovering new talents, honouring titans and unearthing neglected masterworks and geniuses," Maddin and Morgan are quoted as saying on the festival's website.

The guest director collaborates with festival organizers and brings in overlooked films, according to the festival's website. Maddin and Morgan's selections will be kept secret until the festival's opening day.

Maddin is known for films such as My Winnipeg (2007) and The Saddest Music in the World (2003) and the couple have "long been a part of Telluride," says festival executive director Julie Huntsinger.

Maddin won the festival's Silver Medallion in 1995.
