Published by Business Insider on Fri, 17 Aug 2018

From today's rising stars to veteran auteurs, some of the best Hollywood filmmakers have delivered fantastic debut feature-length films.Some haven't reached the promise of their first film yet (Neill Blomkamp peaked with "District 9"); some haven't slowed down (Brad Bird makes hit after hit); and some are just getting started (Bo Burnham is earning widespread praise for this year's "Eighth Grade," now in theaters).We looked at the work of filmmakers past and present to determine some of the best debut features of all time.Below are 16 of the best:SEE ALSO:5 movies in 2018 that could be nominated for the new, controversial 'popular film' award at the Oscars"Eighth Grade" (2018) ' Bo BurnhamBo Burnham rose to stardom on YouTube and has developed a successful stand-up comedy career where he expresses his own thought-provoking questions about humanity through unique musical performances.
