Sun Valley Film Festival | Seeking films, TV, web series, music videos, and short scripts
7th Annual Sun Valley Film Festival (SVFF), an event that attracts significant filmmaker exposure in a majestic mountain locale, steeped in Hollywood history. USA Today has recognized Sun Valley one of the “Top 10 Greatest Places for a Fabulous Film Festival.” SVFF welcomes more than 4,500 filmmakers and movie lovers to enjoy more than 60 films including world premieres, networking dinners, unique forums, passionate discussions and lively parties.

Filmmakers receive all access passes to the festival, which includes priority access to films, panels, special events, and parties, with qualifying feature filmmakers receiving lodging and a travel stipend. Idaho filmmakers will also have the opportunity to take home the Gem State Award sponsored by Zions Bank with a $1,000 USD jury prize, and the short script competition, the 1 Potato, comes with a $5,000 award towards producing the script in Idaho. Filmmakers of all genres around the world will also have the opportunity to compete for awards including an Audience Award, the Vision Award recognizing producers, and more than $1,500 in cash will be awarded across several winning films from students grades 7 through 12.
