Got the summer movie blahs? Don’t despair, the fourth annual Salt Lake City Film Festival is right around the corner! Set aside some time the weekend of September 20- 23 and catch a few of the 40 new features, documentaries or shorts selected to show this year. Screenings will be held at the Broadway & Tower theaters, and Brewviews Cinema Pub.
The opening night feature, Duck Beach to Eternity, by native filmmaker Laura Naylor, follows LDS singles as they look for love in Duck, North Carolina. Among other films, the festival is also presenting Fever Year, a documentary about musician Andrew Bird, and Intro, a brilliant documentary about local musician David Williams.
This year the festival is offering $5.00 tickets for students for any evening screening and $1.00 (with ID) for all matinees! This is an unheard of discount at ANY festival (Discount is not available with online ticket purchases)
Executive director Matt Whittaker of the SLC Film Society says, “We are so thrilled to be entering our 4th year as an organization! We see this festival as a critical piece to the community and are so excited by the number of excellent films we received for 2012. This is going to be such a great year!”
