This year, the Sun Valley Film Festival will bring the area’s lavish cinematic tradition into the 21st century by welcoming cutting-edge independent films, premieres, children’s programming and previews of new television and web series. This spring, filmmakers from all around the world will bring their vision and talent to the Sun Valley Film Festival.

The Sun Valley Film Festival which takes place March 15-18, announces its lineup of dramatic and documentary feature films, television series, web series, children’s programming and short films.
