ST. GEORGE – DOCUTAH announces its partnership with the SLC Film Center on the Utah Film Circuit for a monthly film screening event. Organizers of the DOCUTAH International Film Festival feel the need to provide a global connection to the community of St. George through documentary film. “Documentary films play an important part in the way we communicate with one another” recognizes Festival Director, Phil Tuckett. “They can make you laugh or cry and the potential is there to learn something about the world around us.”
The Utah Film Circuit will make a stop in St. George on Friday April 29. Mark your calendar to attend the screening of the documentary film, Carbon Nation at 7:30 p.m. in the Eccles main stage theatre on the campus of Dixie State College. This event is free and open to the general public.
Carbon Nation is a climate change solutions movie that doesn’t care if you believe in climate change. Even if you doubt the severity of the impact of climate change or just don’t buy it at all, this compelling and relevant film illustrates important issues in regards to conservation. Filmmaker Peter Byck is traveling on the film circuit and will be available for Q&A at the close of the film.
DOCUTAH is the Southern Utah International Film Festival presented by Dixie State College in St. George. The 2011 Festival dates are September 8 to 17. Festival goers come for the films and stay for the scenery.
“We are excited to open this year’s festival on Thursday September 8 with the biography of entertainer, Wayne Newton and a performance by the legend himself. The festival is filled with wonderful surprises including a culminating event at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah,” said Festival Executive Director, Christina Schultz.
