The Mill Valley Film Festival (MVFF) began in 1977 as a small three-day showcase. It has since evolved into its present 11-day event packed with new films, both American independent and foreign, as well as award-winning notables in the industry. More than 200 filmmakers participate from around the globe to share their work in a relaxed, non-competitive environment. MVFF is presented by the California Film Institute, which promotes film as art and education at the Festival as well as year-round exhibitions.

MVFF typically draws nearly 70,000 attendees over the course of the celebration, which includes much more than the films. Panel discussions, featured guests, spotlight presentations, live music performances and gala parties take place at a variety of locations throughout Marin County. MVFF has an enviable history of premiering films and debuting filmmakers and often provides a sneak preview of potential Academy Award® winners. This year’s offerings carry on that tradition.

“We are excited to be a part of this prestigious event and to experience the community’s involvement in the filmmaking industry,” commented Erinn Millar, Sales Manager at Zephyr’s Marin Office.
