This month sees the ninth edition of the Sun Valley Film Festival in Idaho, USA, an event promoting the art of filmmaking, which this year will honour standout stars such as Winston Duke for his roles in Black Panther and Us. To coincide with the festival, Sun Valley Resort is hosting a three-day experience (18-22 March) where guests will be given insider access to the line-up of cinematic events, combined with skiing and spa treatments.
The historic hotel – opened as America’s first ski resort and famed for hosting Ernest Hemingway as he wrote For Whom the Bell Tolls, as well as film stars during Hollywood’s Golden Age – has organised Insider Passes (the film festival’s highest level access) for visitors joining the event, which offer entry to all film showings, panels and parties, in addition to an invitation to the Screenwriters Lab Cocktail reception, hosted by Oscar-winning screenwriter Stephen Gaghan (Traffic, Dolittle and Syriana). The main event, however, will be the SVFF Vision Dinner held on 21 March, which pays tribute to icons of the entertainment industry. Past honorees include Clint Eastwood and Gwyneth Paltrow.
As part of the package, guests will also have time at the spa and on the slopes of Bald Mountain for skiing with a professional guide.
