Wednesday, March 15 marks the opening day of the sixth annual Sun Valley Film Festival.
This year's slate of films is quite impressive, including the talents of Oscar winner Viola Davis and Ellen Burstyn. Special events will include live appearances from Geena Davis, Allison Williams, the Farrelly Brothers, producer/director Brett Ratner and many more.
KBSX's George Prentice caught up with festival executive director Teddy Grennan and director Candice Pate as they ready the finishing touches on the festival.
Grennan and Pate discussed lessons learned from festivals past and what it is about Sun Valley that keeps people talking about the event long after they've left it.
