The Salt Lake City Film Festival is a grassroots, international film festival whose mission is entertain and educate. It's what we do.

The Salt Lake City Film Festival is moving into it's third year as a grassroots film festival (August 18th-21st) and we couldn't be more excited! We have already screened more than 100 Features, Documentaries, and Shorts from all around the world and are so pleased about this year's program. We are also on the cusp of becoming a 501-C3 (nonprofit organization) which has been a very challenging process, but one that will undoubtedly allow us to expand and make things even better! We are dedicated to this festival like it was our own child, or a pet... or a pet that resembles a child. Either way, we are in it to the end. We love our city in the summer months and want the world to see cinematic offerings beyond the winter festival mammoth which is Sundance. 

However, as costs grow we always have to address our VENUE RENTAL. Seems easy enough, right? Well, when all is said and done, venue rental costs total more than 5,000 dollars. I can tell you, we're small, and that fiscal demon is a budget-breaker. With an unpaid staff of 12 people, you can see why we reach out to the community. Our goal is to raise 3,000 dollars to offset these costs. That way, more of our limited budget can be used in getting these great filmmakers out here from all corners of the globe and putting them up in a proper hotel. I know this is cliche, but we can't do this without your gracious support.

The way we see it, raising 3,000 dollars is a complete possibility and we intend to do so in 30 days. If we can make that goal, we'll have the down-payment ready and in the hands of the venue owners right before the festival begins (or at very least confirmed). We know we can make this happen!  As artists ourselves, we understand that this entire local, national, and international film community is intrinsically connected and it's a beautiful thing! It's the one thing that reminds us that this labor of love is completely worthwhile in every way.Thank you in advance for your aid in this process. Please take advantage of our awesome pledge rewards.
