Films from around the world and close to home will be screened at the Logan Film Festival

The 3rd annual Logan Film Festival will be a celebration of independent film that focuses on artistic expression and alternative views instead of big Hollywood names and budgets. Film Festival spokesman Jesse Budd says the selected films were submitted from around the world and out of 43 films that will be screened, seven of them were made in Cache Valley, 12 in Utah, 13 in the USA and 11 internationally.

The films have various run times and are both narrative and documentary in nature. Budd says the festival team is excited to be screening “20,000 Days on Earth”, the documentary feature that was premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and received two awards for editing and directing.

Budd said “20,000 Days on Earth” will be playing Friday, September 26 at 7 p.m. at the Ellen Eccles Theatre. He said the team is also screening an AFI thesis film directed by a Cache Valley native–Kevin Lacy.

His film “Young Americans” has won seven awards at various film festivals and took 2nd place at the College Emmy Awards in the drama category. To learn more about each individual film and for more information on the festival, call (801) 580-7645 or visit
