Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers




Since its premiere in 2001, alongside the grand reopening of Pacific Theatres at the Sherman Oaks Galleria, The Valley Film Festival holds the proud title of being the first film festival in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley. Our mission is to further the education, production, and distribution of filmmaking in The Valley, with a goal of bringing together established filmmakers, emerging talent, and their audiences on the studio backlot - just North of Hollywood.
