See the work of young filmmakers
Nine short documentary films by young local filmmakers will be shown Wednesday, Aug. 6, at 7 p.m. at the Salt Lake Film Center’s Tower Theatre at 876 E 900 South in Salt Lake. Sundance Institute and Spy Hop Productions present nine short films by young filmmakers participating in Reel Stories: Sundance Institute’s Youth Documentary Workshop at Spy Hop Productions. This free screening is an opportunity for the community to see youth-produced work and for Reel Stories participants to share their experiences with an audience. Utah high school students write, direct, and edit their own short documentaries through Reel Stories. Focused on the art and craft of documentary filmmaking, the free workshop gives students hands-on experience with award-winning filmmakers who teach participants how to tell their own story. Join the filmmakers as they explore topics such as immigration, alternative education, rising gas prices and sexual identity.
Kimball Arts Festival used renewable energy
The 39th annual Kimball Arts Festival used 7,000 kilowatt hours of renewable wind energy provided through Rocky Mountain Power’s Blue Sky program to make the festival held Aug. 2-3 a green event. Blue Sky energy generated at the Judith Gap Wind project in Harlowtown, Mont., used to supply energy for all festival activities. "We are pleased to partner with Rocky Mountain Power to make the Kimball Arts Festival a green event," said Julie Hooker, Kimball Arts Festival director of community and corporate relations. "The renewable electricity benefits provided through Rocky Mountain Power’s Blue Sky program will offset the environmental impacts of the festival’s electricity use while making a positive impact on the environment and helping to get the word out about renewable energy."
