Forty years ago, Telluride, Colo. was a tiny, little-known western town preparing to stage its first international film festival with a line up of hard-to-find films. Today, the town of 2,300 is synonymous worldwide with its annual Labor Day weekend film festival that draws Hollywood bigwigs and independent filmmakers alike and has premiered numerous acclaimed films.

But what’s more striking than the notoriety the town gained through the growth of its festival is the community spirit it and hundreds of other film festivals nationwide illustrate. Honoring the arts and artists, film festivals can bring communities together, while also allowing them to welcome tourists, and, in some ways, have a role in shaping the entertainment industry at large.
