about the sun valley film festival


Since 2012 the Sun Valley Film Festival has invited fans and filmmakers to America’s first ski resort to celebrate the magic of storytelling. The year-round Sun Valley Film Initiative develops professionals and Illuminates the process of filmmaking, propelling emerging voices with grants and education. Every spring the Festival celebrates with a slate of cutting-edge films and TV premieres, industry panels, engaging Coffee Talks with entertainment luminaries, a Screenwriters Lab led by award-winning writers, and a series of parties culminating with the spectacular SVFF Awards Bash. SVFF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.


With its stunning mountain setting and unprecedented access to the film industry’s on and off-screen talent, the Sun Valley Film Festival has become known for curating intimate conversations between filmmakers, writers, actors and audiences.


The Sun Valley Film Festival attracts an affluent culture-seeking and active audience. Attendance over five days is close to 4000, a sweet spot to cultivate and preserve an intimate and exceptional experience. Our audience is made up of filmmakers and industry insiders from LA, NY and a growing number of regional attendees, and Sun Valley residents and second home owners.

What People Are Saying

It's wonderfully intimate and remains very high end in both the quality of films presented and the festival itself. Sun Valley has kept its integrity... the magic dust." - Kate Bosworth

At the festival I can tell people love filmmaking in every aspect - writing, acting, cinematography, producing and so I'm really excited to be here and meet people who are just as excited about the process as I am. - Yahya Abdul Mateen II

Sun Valley's intimate size snuffs egos and allows personalities, connections, and the zeal for filmmaking to flourish everywhere from get-togethers in cozy cafes to the lofty lifts of Bald Mountain. - Flaunt Magazine
