One Venue. One Experience. All Together.
October 3 - 6, 2019 - 

Original Thinkers is a unique blend of art, ideas and film with most of the action taking place in a single theater in Telluride, CO. The programming is wide-ranging and highly curated with selected speakers and movies, providing a rich and meaningful experience for the audience. Attendees are also absolved of the frenzy that marks so many festivals because a pass guarantees access.

It’s that simple. No long lines and no anxiety about whether you’ll make it into the theater. This all makes for a high-impact, low-stress weekend that will leave you inspired, motivated and rejuvenated. Bring your curiosity and some warm clothes because you never know about the weather in the mountains this time of year. We’ll take care of the rest.
