June 1, 2022: Team Update
It’s summer, which means it’s time to watch movies with our favorite people—you! We have a great line-up of films from past Sundance Film Festivals.
Find us at the beautiful Red Butte Garden Amphitheater, and at new locations like the Gateway, The Gallivan Center, and Valley Fair Mall in West Valley City.
We also got a fresh collection of Nuestras Vidas: Latinx Shorts for the Latino Arts Festival in Park City.
Are you a bookworm? We’ve partnered with the Coalville and Kamas Valley Branch Libraries to showcase a film inspired by the book, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman. Stick around for a discussion led by the Book to Film Club.
Local filmmakers! RSVP for our case study conversation with Alex Pritz, director of The Territory, on June 17.
