NAPOLEON DYNAMITE 15th Anniversary w/Cast & Crew to benefit Utah Film Center

This is a fundraiser for the nonprofit Utah Film Center and your purchase is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Utah Film Center is excited to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Napoleon Dynamite with a special screening! As part of the celebration, fan-favorite members of the cast and crew* are reuniting for a lively moderated conversation following the film: Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Efren Ramirez (Pedro), Emily Dunn (Trisha), Shondrella Avery (Lafawnduh), and Aaron Ruell (Kip) with Jared Hess (Director/Writer), Jerusha Hess (Writer), and Jeremy Coon (Producer/Editor).

We’ll have 2 vendors onsite:

Curt R. Jensen, Art Director for Napoleon Dynamite, will be selling his homewoven handicrafts (a must-have for this season’s fashion). In addition, he’ll be bringing Deb’s original boondoggle case from the film!
San Diablo Churros will be selling churros, including special Napoleon-inspired churro tots drizzled in dulce de leche, Nutella or sweet cream!

We will also be selling autographed posters, and Utah Film Center merchandise.
