Salt Lake City, UT - From April 1-3, 2011, the SLC Film Center presents the inaugural Tumbleweeds Film Festival for Children and Youth – the only film festival of it’s kind in the intermountain west. The annual festival feature a jam-packed program of feature length and short films from around the world films for children and youth ages 4-14. All films presented at Tumbleweeds will be screened in their original language with foreign language films presented with English subtitles that will be read aloud by a “subtitle reader” during the screening. In addition to film screenings, the Film Center is partnering with Spy Hop Productions to present workshops designed to introduce participants to different aspects of filmmaking. The full festival line-up and program will be announced in early March.
