The Festival

Since its launch in 2018, Original Thinkers has promised to be a highly curated festival that melds speakers, films and performance into a powerful four-day experience in Telluride. Original Thinkers brings together big thinkers from all backgrounds and offers unique perspectives on some of the crucial issues of our time and engages people to have a real tangible impact on communities around the world. The festival features films, panels and storytellings that focus on 10 big ideas. This festival was founded by David Holbrooke, a documentary filmmaker who ran MountainFilm for over a decade. Co-founder Nancy Schafer founded and ran SXSW and also worked on the Tribeca Film Festival for 11 years, while co-conspirator Gabe Lifton-Zoline successfully ran Obama's campaigns in colorado and makes his own films.
