Christopher Maddux to be celebrated

(Tyler Cobb/Park Record)

A celebration of life will be held for Park City High School television production teacher Christopher Maddux in the Eccles Center, 1750 Kearns Blvd., on Thursday, May 5, at 6 p.m.

Maddux passed away on April 28 of colon cancer.

Maddux was the force behind the Miner Film Festival, which had become so popular in its eight years of existence that it was moved this year to the largest auditorium available in Park City, the 1,259-seat Eccles Center.

The festival, featuring films by students from PCHS and Treasure Mountain International School, was held this year on April 19.

Throughout his years as a teacher, Maddux inspired hundreds of students, some of whom have moved on to become award-winning filmmakers in their own right.
