The Sun Valley Film Festival is a 501 (c)(3) charitable non-profit that exists to develop professionals and illuminate the process of filmmaking. Since 2012 it has hosted more than 500 storytellers, creating opportunities and propelling emerging voices with grants, education and professional guidance. 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.
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.
