The first-ever Original Thinkers Festival, launched by former Mountainfilm festival director, David Holbrooke, is built on the idea of original thinking of artists, speakers and films. The fest will be held at a single venue, and will be approximately 60 percent films and 40 percent speakers.
Holbrooke is being helped by Nancy Shafer, who created and operated the SXSW Film Festival for eight years before running the Tribeca Film Festival for 11 years.
More details, including speakers and films, will be available closer to the date. Tickets go on sale in May.
