Since 2012 the Sun Valley Film Festival has represented creativity, passion, and storytelling. Artists, filmmakers, and storytellers commune year after year to honor the art of filmmaking in a beautiful and serene mountain town. Come celebrate with them and other notable celebrities this March, the 18th through the 22nd.
This year’s Sun Valley Film Festival will include five days of unique films ranging from documentaries about cowboys to dynamic films of drama to tv series on the cosmos. There is something for everyone and something to be celebrated in each. Film showings will take place primarily at The Opera House and Argyros, with special events taking place at the Community Library and Tito’s Handmade Vodka Filmmaker Loft. You can find a full schedule of events at their website.
