About the Park City Film Series
The Park City Film Series is Summit County’s only nonprofit Art House Cinema. A Park City staple since 1999, the Film Series has established itself as a vital, contributing member of the local community. We accomplish this not only through the screening of independent, foreign and documentary films each weekend, but also through our programming of post-screening Q&A’s and panel discussions that deepen the community dialogue around the issues raised by the films we screen. We also provide opportunities for emerging filmmakers to hone their craft as well as showcase their work in a public space, support area non-profits through film-based fundraisers and free community screenings and provide special programming for children to enhance their literacy skills and build cultural understanding. Our vision is to use film as a medium to entertain, inspire and educate our patrons, helping Park City remain a well informed and engaged mountain community. Our mission is to create community through film.
