National Theatre Live is presented in collaboration with Tanner Humanities and Salt Lake Film Society. Presentations are performances of The National Theatre of London’s current productions shown digitally on the big screen.
Acclaimed playwright Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Arcadia, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead) returns to the National Theatre with his highly-anticipated new play The Hard Problem, directed by Nicholas Hytner (Othello, Hamlet, One Man, Two Guvnors).
Hilary, a young psychology researcher at a brainscience institute, is nursing a private sorrow and a troubling question at work, where psychology and biology meet. If there is nothing but matter, what is consciousness? This is ‘the hard problem’ which puts Hilary at odds with her colleagues who include her first mentor Spike, her boss Leo and the billionaire founder of the institute, Jerry. Is the day coming when the computer and the fMRI scanner will answer all the questions psychology can ask? Meanwhile Hilary needs a miracle, and she is prepared to pray for one.

Utah is full of real stories and real characters that make this place unique. And it’s full of filmmakers ready to bring those stories to an audience. Are you one of them?
On Wednesday, June 10 at 7:00 p.m., Salt Lake Film Society and VideoWest are hosting an evening of short documentary films about Utah places or people, and we’re hoping you’ll add yours to the mix.
We’ll begin with a collection of films created in partnership with VideoWest, KUER’s online showcase of Utah shorts. We’ll follow it with an open-mic style screening … which means there are no pre-selections and no restrictions, except we’re asking for real stories about real people.
How to Enter
Make a documentary film that tells a real Utah story … under 6 minutes.
Turn in your short documentary on June 9 by 7:00 p.m. at Tower Theatre (The day before the screening.)
Filmmaker submission fee: $5
Submit on DVD (we prefer one film per DVD, no menu)
In the event that too many filmmakers submit, the films will be chosen by lottery.
Submissions will be considered for an audience award, critic’s choice award and a SLFS/VideoWest pick. All submissions will be posted on the Salt Lake Film Society website and considered for a feature spot on KUER’s VideoWest
