Known as a filmmakers’ festival, the annual Mill Valley Film Festival, presented by the California Film Institute, offers a high-profile, prestigious and non-competitive environment perfect for celebrating the best in independent and world cinema.
Founded in 1978 by MVFF Director Mark Fishkin, the festival has established an impressive track record for launching new films and the careers of new filmmakers and is well known for the quality of its programming.
As the only prominent fall film festival in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Mill Valley Film Festival is also an important industry resource —both for its emphasis on films that have not yet secured US distribution and for fall launches and northern California Academy Awards campaigns.
The Bay Area continues to be a significant market for independent and international film, and MVFF consistently provides a forum for introducing new films to West coast audiences. For filmmakers, audiences and industry professionals alike, it’s the perfect environment for film.
Festival sections include the Official Premiere Selection, World Cinema, US Cinema, Valley of the Docs, Children’s FilmFest, 5@5 (daily shorts programs) and VisionFest (programs embracing cutting-edge filmmaking and technologies). Gala celebrations, parties, seminars and opportunities to mingle with filmmakers in a spectacular setting are just a few of the reasons that Screen International named Mill Valley a Top 10 US film festival!
