This year’s edition of the Telluride Film Festival announced its lineup today, revealing that Colorado will play host this weekend to a variety of awards hopefuls. Jean-Marc Vallées’ Wild starring Reese Witherspoon, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game, and Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater are among the films that will have their world premiere at the festival. (Those movies will also all screen at the Toronto International Film Festival, which instituted new rules about premieres in an attempt to prevent films from making a Colorado pit stop before heading to Canada.) Films like Birdman and Foxcatcher—which have already premiered to rapturous reviews at the Venice and Cannes film festivals, respectively, and have significant Oscar buzz for their stars—will screen.  Last year’s Best Picture winner, 12 Years a Slave, was first seen at Telluride, as was Argo, the previous year’s winner.

The festival, which runs from Aug. 29 through Sept. 1, is also known for adding surprise screenings.
