    The Sun Valley Film Festival is one of the “ten great places for a fabulous film festival,” USA Today wrote last week. The festival was included in the paper’s Weekend Life travel section as part of its pre-Oscars coverage.
    “This fantastic exposure to over 3 million readers is clearly a sign the Sun Valley Film Festival is breaking through as a festival not to be missed,” Festival Director Candice Pate said.
    The festival also announced that eight new independent narrative and documentary films and two full-length world premiere “Nat Geo Wild” TV shows have been added to the diverse film lineup for the upcoming festival, March 14-17, presented by Zions Bank.
    These latest editions are added to the rich collection of more than 60 features, shorts, student films and music videos to be screened at festival theater venues in Sun Valley, Ketchum and Hailey. 
    The complete 2013 festival schedule will be available on the festival website at beginning Feb. 26.  Festival passes can be bought online now and individual film tickets will be available online beginning March 1.
    Festival headquarters is located at 251 Washington St. in Ketchum and will be open daily beginning March 4 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., offering information and festival passes, individual film tickets and assorted festival souvenirs.
    The second annual Sun Valley Film Festival will feature a curated slate of films and TV premieres, including seven world premieres, coffee talks with industry insiders that include Hollywood legend Jodie Foster, parties with music by indie rock band Built to Spill, a Screenwriter’s Lab led by Independent Spirit Award nominee Will McCormack, and an Alaska Airlines closing awards après-ski ceremony.
