Welcome to the Grand Teton Film Festival!

We are dedicated to the following three goals that are the core of our efforts:

Good things happen when the best-of-the-best engage in a common goal. At the Grand Teton Film Festival, we encourage filmmakers to get to know each other by providing a place where ideas and friendships can be founded.

There is no substitute for the thrill of seeing your hard work up on the big screen and watching the reaction of audience members. The Grand Teton Film Festival seeks to provide all levels of filmmakers with this unique experience.

Grand Teton Film Festival is dedicated to providing education for beginning or intermediate filmmakers by enlisting industry professionals to teach hands-on workshops that will empower and encourage participants to create.

The Grand Teton Film Festival is made possible by the generosity of many individuals, businesses, and organizations. We highly value our relationship with these good people who desire to support the art of filmmaking and celebrate those who create it. The Festival is also powered by many amazing volunteers that bring their time and talents together to make something great. As the festival continues to grow more and more each year, we dedicate ourselves to supporting the filmmaker and seeking new opportunities.
