By Indiewire Staff | Indiewire September 1, 2014 at 8:59AM

Indiewire's critic and editor-at-large report from the Colorado festival on a crop of new films bound to receive a lot more attention in the near future.

Screen Talk, Indiewire's weekly podcast co-hosted by Anne Thompson and Eric Kohn, is now available on iTunes. You can subscribe here or via RSS.

In this week's episode, the pair meet up at the Telluride Film Festival to discuss several highlights from the 41st program, including Michael Keaton in "Birdman," Reese Witherspoon in "Wild" and Benedict Cumberbatch in "The Imitation Game." They also discuss how these and other movies — such as the Cannes-winning "Foxcatcher" — currently figure into the developing Oscar race. Moving beyond awards season fervor, they highlight some of the notable documentaries in the lineup and look ahead to the Toronto International Film Festival, which starts Thursday.
