The 20th annual LDS Film Festival released its four-day program celebrating the art of cinema.

Event organizers are taking what they learned from COVID-19 safety guidelines to host an in-person festival at the Scera Center for the Arts in Orem, UT on Wednesday, February 24th – Saturday, February 27th.

Since 2001, the LDS Film Festival has covered a wide range of topics including feel good films that uplift and inspire as well as fun films to simply make you laugh.

"While the pandemic stopped or delayed many productions in 2020, there were still filmmakers that put in the extra safety protocol and pivots to find ways to complete their film productions and the festival is excited to celebrate their work," stated Kels Goodman, LDS Film Festival Director.

He told us the festival is following health and safety guidelines including reduced capacities, social distancing, hand sanitizing and mandatory mask-wearing.

The festival kicks off with a special screening on opening night of "Witnesses", which releases summer 2021 on a wide scale. The film deals with the early history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints and the translation of the Book of Mormon.

The full lineup for 2021 includes more than 50 viewing hours and 40 films in multiple categories, so there really is something for everyone.
