The Sun Valley Film Festival is bringing the stars to its namesake city this year, as well as a solid slate of world premieres and indie titles hot off the festival circuit.
Sun Valley will honor Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood, whose “American Sniper” is an Oscar powerhouse, with its inaugural Lifetime Vision Award. A fifth day of programming has also been added including the fest’s signature Coffee Talks, a series of intimate, early morning Q&As that this year feature Bruce Dern and Pill Paxton.
In all, more than 60-curated films will screen followed by filmmakers Q&A sessions. Highlights include Michael Fassbender starrer and Sundance premiere “Slow West,” “Cut Bank” with Liam Hemsworth, education system doc “Most Likely to Succeed, the long-awaited documentary “Girl From God’s Country” on Idaho’s inaugural female indie filmmaker Nell Shipman, and more.
