Eden — Summit, producer of the Summit Series leadership conference and owner of Powder Mountain, has partnered with the Utah Film Center to bring independent documentary and dramatic film to the Ogden Valley.
“This is the kind of collaboration we’d love to see more of in the future,” said Summit partner Thayer Walker. “Our goal is to share the expertise and resources of the Summit community with the Ogden Valley, Weber County and the state of Utah as a whole.”
As part of the Utah Film Circuit, the program will begin this fall with monthly showings of films that are otherwise unavailable at commercial venues. The venue and schedule will be announced in late summer or early fall of 2013.
In March, Summit partnered with the Utah Film Center for an Eden showing of “The Crash Reel,” a documentary about professional snowboarder Kevin Pearce’s recovery from a traumatic brain injury suffered while training for the Olympics. “Given the response to that showing, it seemed there was demand for a regular film program in the valley,” Walker said.
The Utah Film Circuit currently serves the communities of West Jordan, Ogden, and Moab and is planned to expand into the Price/Helper area and Sundance Resort in the coming year.
“We strive to create community partnerships throughout the state of Utah, and Summit is a natural fit to help expand the audience for film and activism,” said Holly Yocom, executive director of the Utah Film Center.
