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

A meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith (1969-2003). By threading the music of Elliott Smith through the dense, yet often isolating landscapes of the three major cities he lived in — Portland, New York City, Los Angeles — Heaven Adores You presents a visual journey and an earnest review of the singer’s prolific songwriting and the impact it continues to have on fans, friends, and fellow musicians.
