MISSION & OBJECTIVE

In an effort to help filmmakers complete their film's vision, Tito's Handmade Vodka and the Sun Valley Film Festival are teaming up to furnish writers, directors and producers with $5,000 in finishing funds. Trevor Groth [Director of Programming for the Sundance Film Festival] returns again as The Film Lab host. In addition to a thoughtful audience, Trevor will give filmmakers feedback as they prepare to lock their film, and send it into the film festival fray.
