GOD'S OWN COUNTRY


CENTERPIECE FILM

Saturday, July 15 @ 7:30 PM

 Post-film Q&A  with actor Alec Secareanu moderated by John Cooper, Director of Sundance Film Festival.

It’s spring in Yorkshire. Young farmer Johnny Saxby numbs his daily frustrations with binge drinking and casual sex, until the arrival of a Romanian migrant worker for lambing season ignites an intense relationship that sets Johnny on a new path.

Centerpiece Film presented in partnership with the Sundance Institute.

PLAY THE DEVIL


Saturday, July 15 @ 4:45 PM

Set against the backdrop of Trinidad and Tobago’s mystical Carnival, a gifted and struggling young man becomes the object of intrigue for an older, well-meaning businessman until their worlds collide.

 

APRICOT GROVES


Sunday, July 16 @ 2:30 PM

Aram, an Iranian Armenian youth who immigrated to the U.S. in childhood, returns to Armenia for the first time to propose to an Armenian girlfriend he met and lived with in the United States. Aram sees many cultural, religious, and national differences on the one day trip, but harder obstacles are ahead.

DTH Festival: Art Exhibit


Out Loud Exhibition to be displayed at DTH

For the second year, Utah Film Center is honored to display the Out Loud: Identities, Symbolism, and The Self exhibition at this year's Damn These Heels LGBTQ Film Festival July 14-16th in the lobby of the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. This exhibition is currently on display through July 8th at Utah Museum of Contemporary Art.

During the third installment of the Out Loud workshop series at UMOCA, 11 youths attended after-school workshops to explore identity and power through contemporary artmaking. Through explorations in contemporary art and the creation of a museum exhibition featuring their own artwork, students build their capacity for self-expression and cultivate a sense of agency as important contributors to our society. The workshop and resulting Out Loud: Identities, Symbolism, and The Self exhibition serve as a platform for youth in the LGBTQIA+ to share their creative voices out loud.
