Hailey is proud to be an important part of the annual Sun Valley Film Festival (SVFF), held each March, with film screenings throughout the weekend at its beautifully restored Liberty Theatre. The SVFF, recognized by USA Today as one of the “Great Places for a Film Festival,” rolls out the red carpet for filmmakers and movie lovers each March to celebrate the art of filmmaking and provide another great reason to visit Hollywood’s original ski Shangri-La.
The Sun Valley Film Festival began in 2011 and has quickly become a filmmaker’s festival in a place steeped in cinematic history, with a proven knack for drawing industry heavyweights and independent talents to an intimate locale far from the Hollywood scene. The combination of cutting-edge programming and bona-fide insider access in a fun, relaxed atmosphere is making the Sun Valley Film Festival a rising star in the world of destination festivals. As Hollywood legend and 2013 Festival special guest Jodie Foster put it, “Remember this festival as it is now, ‘cause it’s going to be big.” Great parties, dinners, special events, and sunny spring skiing top off this spirited and inspired festival weekend in Sun Valley.
