(Provided) “Hostiles,” directed by Scott Cooper, will be among the films shown at the “Telluride at Dartmouth” film festival. (Provided) For the 32nd consecutive year, the Hopkins Center for the Arts at Dartmouth College opens its film season with six films straight from the famed Telluride Film Festival— this year’s crop consisting of a Cold War fairy tale/satire; a “woke” Western; a dystopian comedy; a Syrian refugee in Finland; harrowing moral choices in a tiny upstate New York town; and a May-December relationship involving an aging movie star.

The mini-series shows the latest work by such singular filmmakers as Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth”), Alexander Payne (“Nebraska”), Aki Kaurismäki (“Le Havre”) and Paul Schrader (“Taxi Driver”), and screen actors Sally Hawkins, Christian Bale, Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Ethan Hawke and Annette Bening.

“Telluride at Dartmouth” runs Friday, Sept. 15-Thurs., September 21. One film is shown each day, at 4 and 7 p.m., except for Monday. All shows are in Spaulding Auditorium.

The Telluride Film Festival, occurring each Labor Day weekend in Colorado, is considered one of the premier arts events in the country. Each year, hundreds of cinema lovers flock to a tiny mountain town to immerse themselves in a three-day celebration of film.

“Telluride at Dartmouth” was born 32 years ago through a longstanding relationship between the festival and college. Each year, six films come directly from Colorado for special advance screenings at the Hopkins Center. This is a unique opportunity for the Dartmouth community to get a sneak peek at the latest international films—often months before they’re released.

Audience members can buy individual tickets or passes for all six films online, by phone at 603-646- 2422, or in person at the Hopkins Center Box. Doors open 30 minutes before show time for pass holders. Individual ticketholders will be seated approximately 20 minutes before show time.
