Peter Weir's The Way Back has screened at Telluride and a few times after but only in LA. I read on Hollywood Elsewhere that it will not be screened in New York until very late this year if not 2011. Kind of an odd strategy for a film that is expected to to be in play for various awards but early word has been good, if not great.
In regards to animation all the talk this season has been of Toy Story 3 and How to Train Your Dragon. Sylvain Chomet's The Illusionist has been getting straight out rave reviews at every festival it has played at. It is a sure fire best animated film nominee at this point with some saying it is the year's finest animated film.
