Jones's daughter, Linda Jones Clough, was present for a special animation conversation, which took place at the Chuck Jones Cinema.

39th Telluride Film Festival was dedicated to Bingham Ray (1954-2012) and Jan Sharp (1946-2012).

Tribute to Mads Mikkelsen (video/interview)




I wonder, if this Silver Medallion was for his perfomance in The Hunt or because of all his movies. scratch

Here's an interview from the Telluride Film Festival 2012 with Mads about different things: Hannibal, The Hunt, working in Denmark or somewhere else ...

Thank you Luin!

I couldn't get to Telluride this year... Embarassed Although it is in Colorado it's up in the mountains -they only announce the films that they will show the day before the festival starts and I wasn't able to get a ticket in time!

This is still wonderful.... although I do wish he'd stop smoking!

Thank you again Luin!

bounce I feel much better now - it has been really crazy at work - but I have a few days off now!

love

You're welcome, Empress! *take a bow*

I've never heard about this Festival anyway. I've stumbled across it while searching for pictures and then found this videos. Well after I've posted it here, I realized, that these videos were on his official site too Rolling Eyes

But this website of the Festival isn't very good. It's hard to find any information about that festival. There are some more videos (but non of Mads) with stars. But nothing about the movies. Well, if they announce, what will be played the day before the opening, it says everything. Razz

By making this article more comfortable to read, I realized, that "A royal affair" was shown too. It's very interesting, that these two movies are so good, that there are several festivals - not only European festivals, who show them. Well "A royal affair" is pretty good. Can't wait to see "The Hunt".

Empress, can you explain, for what reason Mads got this Silver Medallion?

I haven't watched the interview videos as well, but I saw some fragments while writing/copying these articles. And I rolled my eyes too, when I've heard the clicking of his cigarette lighter. Rolling Eyes Stupid!

Line-Up Announced for 2012 Telluride Film Festival

by Adam Chitwood Posted: August 30th, 2012 at 2:28 pm

The 2012 Silver Medallion Awards, given to recognize an artist’s significant contribution to the world of cinema, go to director and producer ROGER CORMAN who will present CORMAN’S WORLD: EXPLOITS OF A HOLLYWOOD REBEL (U.S., 2011), THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH (U.S.-U.K., 1964) and (THE INTRUDER (U.S., 1961); Academy Award-winning actress MARION COTILLARD(LA VIE EN ROSE) who stars in TFF selection RUST & BONE; and Danish actor MADS MIKKELSEN who stars in two TFF selections: THE HUNT and A ROYAL AFFAIR.

“At the core of each year’s Festival are the Tributes that allow our audiences a chance to gain insight into the creative process of the filmmakers and actors being celebrated,” said Co-Director Tom Luddy. “We are especially pleased with the balance this year, beginning with director/producer, Roger Corman, who has helped launch so many important careers. Then actress Marion Cotillard, whose early career in French films brought her to the attention of the world’s filmmakers and now stars in both European and American movies. Finally there is Mads Mikkelsen, the Danish actor whose powerful performances have brought him much international attention and increasing audience awareness in America.

TELLURIDE FILM FEST: TRIBUTEES & SPECIAL MEDALLION

Written on August 30, 2012 by Susan Viebrock in Festivals

Mads Mikkelsen, pronounced “Mass Meguelsnn,” was not a James Bond fan before starring in “Casino Royale,” (2006), as the villain Le Chiffre.

Mikkelsen was born in a working class suburb of Copenhagen to a mother who is a nurse and a taxi driving father. After nearly a decade as a professional dancer, he enrolled in Denmark’s national theater school. He made his film debut in the movie “Pusher.”

Mikkelsen’s longest running role was playing a policeman in the Danish TV series “Unit One.” The same year he acted in the Bond film, he took the lead in the Oscar-nominated “After the Wedding.” In 2010, he starred in the remake of “Clash of the Titans” as Draco, leader of the king’s guard.

Mikkelsen won Best Actor at Cannes for his role in director Thomas Vinterberg’s “The Hunt” in which he plays Lucas, a divorced kindergarten aide falsely accused of child abuse. This agonizing study of the herd mentality and unquestioning belief in the innocence of children is meant to be cinema that sticks its sharp claws into your back and brings you to your knees. Critics anticipate an Oscar nomination for the actor.

“A Royal Affair” is an 18th-century historical drama and epic romance about the love triangle between a German doctor, John Struensee, Queen Caroline Mathilde of Denmark, and her deranged husband, King Christian VII. Mikkelsen plays the king’s doctor and advisor,but he is also a political reformer dedicated to Enlightenment ideals and determined to consolidate power and form a new society.

Wouldn´t it be really cool if he was nominated for an Oscar? The last time I had a reason to watch it was when Hugh Jackman was hosting it.
Mads definitly deserves one!

Oh yeah. That would be great. But I'm not sure, if the Academy would even nominate Mads, because he's "just" a Danisch actor and not well known in America (even for the mainstream movies he had made). Of course he deserve it and with all I've read about his performance in "The Hunt", he's there really great. Greater than ever. If this is possible? Wink

Everyone raves about Mads performance in 'The Hunt' and how powerful a film it is...So although I haven't seen it yet, I am quite eager about the word of mouth on this film.

I believe Telluride Film Festival gave him the award for being Mads - it wasn't a competition - it was sort of a guest of honor gift. Their web site isn't very good - I was watching it for weeks to see what would be shown this year but they don't announce the films until the day before the festival! AAARRRGGGHHHH!

I do think that he's a brilliant actor and deserves all the awards he gets.

Crazy. I think I've watched these videos - or better one yet - with attention and I've realized today, that Mads moved away from Denmark, because he's doing that Hannibal series. Does anybody mentioned that before? Question Embarassed Shocked I'm really surprised about that, but I'm happy, that he said, that he will come back, if Denmark calls.

I'm not sure, where he lives. Maybe in Toronto:

Quote :
"Everything I've done is a stepping stone to what I do today," he told LAT's John Horn at a Telluride Q & A right before moving with his family to Toronto for a year's shooting on the new TV series "Hannibal." "We get away with a lot," he promised.

Then Mads is really far away now - well he is it surely everyday, because Copenhagen is far away too. But Canada is nearly on the other site of the world.
