Tickets for the popular Homegrown Film Festival go on sale Wednesday, Nov. 22, at www.homegrownfilms.org and https://theargyros.org.

The annual film festival showcases some of the best films made by Wood River Valley filmmakers about Sun Valley-area skiers and snowboarders. And it will take place Friday, Dec. 1, at The Argyros in Ketchum. The 5:15 p.m. screening costs $15 and the 8:15 p.m. screening will cost $20.

Proceeds benefit the Sawtooth Avalanche Center, which provides daily avalanche forecasts for an area stretching from the Fairfield area to the Stanley area.

This year Homegrown is celebrating pro female athletes born, raised or based in the Wood River Valley with a series of edits and film vignettes that are comparable to “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (and Crush It).” These are the women you see on big screen films made by Match Stick Productions, Teton Gravity Research and Brap Ski—“the same ones you see on the street, on the hill and at the grocery store,” said Tina Coles, who helps organize the festival.

And they’re slashing the biggest, boldest lines around the world and at home.

The film festival will also feature the women’s male counterparts providing plenty of antics in their newest edits. And it will feature the Sawtooth Avalanche forecasters who not only provide daily advisories but offer classes for skiers and snowmobilers and interesting insights into snow in their “Digging Deeper” talks.
