The air may be thin in Telluride, a former mining town perched high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, but there was nothing thin about the offerings at the the 22nd Telluride Film Festival held Labor Day weekend.Offering, as always, an eclectic mix of American independent films, foreign imports, student films and archival items, this tiny but prestigious festival gives movie mavens a real feel for the cinema Zeitgeist. It also acts as a preview of some likely art house hits that'll open in cities like Baltimore in the monthsahead.

A quarter-mile up the Cornet Creek Trail, a 10-minute hike from downtown Telluride, Colo., Richard Yeager pauses to watch a waterfall roll off the edge of a 60-foot cliff and explode into the small pool below like an endless fireworks display. Yeager is in town from Albuquerque, N.M., for the annual balloon rally, one of 14 weekend festivals that packs Telluride's summer season (there's even the Nothing Festival for the one weekend there isn't a festival). He's dressed in jeans and cowboy boots, a far cry from the technical gear recommended for Colorado's steep, rocky terrain, and wears a white and green jacket, with "Richard: Crew Chief" embroidered on the front.

Composer John Williams' latest recording contains the theme song of these games. The cover has a Salt Lake 2002 logo and the Olympic rings, surrounding a photo of a snow-covered mountain. But nowhere is the mountain identified. Officials for Sony Music thought it was in Utah's Wasatch Range. The Deseret News, noting that the peak didn't look familiar, asked local outdoors experts for help. None could identify it. Fear spread that the mountain wasn't Utah's. It's not. It's Mount Wilson in Telluride, Colo.

The spectacular snowcapped mountains around you are begging to be climbed, explosively colorful wildflowers and rushing streams add to your Rocky Mountain high, and civilization and its discontents seem even farther away than Denver.So what do you do? Scale that cliff? Fish for trout? No way. Instead, you go to the movies. Again and again and again in the course of a September weekend that transforms a former mining town named Telluride into a center of world cinema.

When the Bogner-bedecked, plastic-booted crowd heads for the lifts in the mornings, I go exploring. I am that pariah of the slopes, a non-skier.I wander down the streets of the mountain villages, poke my head into shops, stand at the bottom of the lifts and watch the symmetrical beauty of skiers schussing gracefully down the slopes. I ride into the nearby town, if there is one, and check out the old places, the mining-town saloons that have become chic bars, the one-time assay offices that require a modern bag of gold for the smart clothes they now stock, the big old Victorian homes that have taken on new life as trendy restaurants.
