Writer and artist Kim Morgan and filmmaker Guy Maddin will be a husband and wife programming team as Guest Directors for this year’s Telluride Film Fest. Their tastes are jointly intriguing, thus their choices should be unpredictable and something to look forward to. Morgan writes brilliant film essays at Sunset Gun, and takes breathtaking photos and self-portraits that she posts on Flickr and occasionally Facebook. Together with Maddin she is now collaborating on filmmaking, something she seemed kind of destined for (if you ask me). Her photos are so cinematic – she has her own film language already and not much farther to go to become a vital voice in film in her own right. Maddin, too, is an artistic force to be reckoned with. All in all, this should be a Telluride to remember.
