sun valley junior film competition
supporting students in film since 2012
The Sun Valley Junior Film Competition facilitates the discovery and support of the best high school filmmakers by highlighting student work in a film festival environment.
Join actor Johnny Sequoyah for a screening of the finalists films and the announcement of the 2023 Hot Shot award. All are welcome for a celebratory reception after the films in the Green Room at the Bailey Studio.
SVJR is made possible by
the generous financial support of
the Steen Family Foundation,
the Hillswood Foundation
and the Nordstrom Family.
By providing the learning environment for these emerging voices in film to see filmmaking as a viable craft, they are inspired to pursue their dreams and tell their stories. Filmmakers accepted into the SVJFC will have their films judged by industry professionals and have the experience of seeing their films screened in the world class Argyros Performing Arts Center in Ketchum, Idaho.
