Adventure, inspiration, and laughter await with the screenings of these three award winning films:


Winner of the 2017 Cinematography Award, this film chronicles the story of Jay Griffith, a middle-aged man who was told by doctors he'd never run again. Despite the odds, he finds himself competing in 100-mile mountain races and getting all the feels from while running with his dog Echo through the Wasatch range.

Paul’s Boots, Directed by Fitz Cahall, 38 mins

When M'Lynn's husband Paul died, he left behind his hiking boots, a backpack, and the unfulfilled dream of completing the Appalachian Trail. As an homage to her husband, M'Lynn sends Paul's boots on a journey and the film follows the people who carry them on the trail. The film won the 2017 Feature Film Award Winner.

Dodo’s Delight, Directed by Josh Lowell, Nick Rosen, & Peter Mortimer, 28 mins

Teton Gravity Research Ski & Snowboard Film

Head on down to the Red Butte Garden Amphitheater on September 19 for a screening of Rogue Elements. The film takes a look at the epic force of winter 2017 from the telephone pole-snapping storms in Wyoming to European blizzards, and the elements going rogue on a Bolivian expedition at 18,000 feet. 

Rogue Elements screens at 8 p.m., but if you come early you'll have a chance to win a trip for two to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, a trip to your very own Ski City (including a VIP tour of the High West Distillery), a trip to Crested Butte, Colorado, Atomic Skis, or REI gift cards.

Sept. 15 - 17: OBIT Fri./Sat. 8 p.m., Sun. 6 p.m. @ the Jim Santy Auditorium

Being a professional obituary writer might sound morbid, but you'd be surprised. Step into the world of the small team at the Obituary Department of the New York Times with OBIT and see how these journalists approach their job of detailing the extraordinary lives of our day into the cultural memory. Along the way, the film ponders some of the most essential questions we ask ourselves about life, memory, and the inevitable passage of time.

Sept. 22 - 24: The Wedding Plan Fri./Sat. 8 p.m., Sun. 6 p.m. @ the Jim Santy Auditorium

What happens when your groom decides to leave you a month before the wedding? The Wedding Plan follows an Orthodox Jewish woman who decides to continue with her plans and hope Mr. Right comes along before the date despite the concerns and pleas of friends and family. This offbeat and poignant romance is a sure crowd pleaser. 

Sept. 28: She Started It - 6:30 p.m. @ the Jim Santy Auditorium 

Between Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs, female role models in the tech world are few and far in between. Through intimate, action-driven storytelling She Started It seeks to inspire the next generation of women by taking a look at the lives of five women from around the world as they pitch their ideas, build teams, and bring products to the market. Featuring perspectives from powerful women, from investor Joanne Wilson to Ruchi Sanghvi, the first female engineer at Facebook, this film explores the challenges women specifically face as they strive to become entrepreneurs and the lack of female representation at big companies. 

This screening is FREE and will be followed by a TBA panel.

One of the gems from the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, STEP documents the senior year of a girls' high school step dance team in the inner-city of Baltimore. While cheering on their dancing, the audience is also given an intimate view of the lives of these girls as they attempt to be the first in their families to attend college and try to find success with social and political unrest in the background.
