Utah Filmmaker Showcase

This spring, Utah Film Center’s Artist Foundry is thrilled to launch our new programming initiative, the Utah Filmmaker Showcase, which focuses on bringing films by local filmmakers and those with connections to Utah to local audiences.

We’ll kick off this series with Omoiyari, a feature documentary film that follows violinist and songwriter Kaoru Ishibashi as he travels on a musical journey to understand WWII-era Japanese incarceration, assimilation, and what it means to be a minority in America today. Fiscally sponsored by the Utah Film Center, produced by University of Utah alum, JJ Gerber, and given Utah’s history as home to a Japanese American Incarceration Camp, this film and Q&A will offer a personal and powerful space for reflection for our Salt Lake City audience. RSVP now to join the conversation and community!
