A film festival is the presentation or showcasing of films in one or more movie theaters or screening venues. The films are usually of a recent date and, depending upon the focus of the individual festival, can include major international releases as well as those made outside a country's established film industry. Sometimes there is a focus on a specific genre (e.g. animation) or subject (e.g. gay and lesbian film festivals). Film Festivals are typically annual events.

The Sundance Film Festival ranks alongside the Cannes, Venice, Berlin and Toronto film festivals as one of the most prestigious in the world.
