When you think about famous film festivals, your thoughts probably go directly to Sundance, Berlin, Toronto, Venice and Cannes. That's not surprising because these are definitely the most well-known film festivals in the world, but the Telluride Film Festival deserves a spot at the top as well.

While the film lineup is not revealed until the festival begins, these are just a few of the big winners that have made their debut in Telluride over the past years.
