KHUMBA – Sensory Friendly Screening

Directed by Anthony Silverstone

Recommended for All Ages

The Utah Film Center is committed to ensuring that children of all abilities can enjoy the wonders of film alongside their peers. We do this by ensuring a “sensory-friendly” film screening where the lights aren’t turned down quite as low as you’ve come to expect in a traditional movie theatre, the audio isn’t as loud and there aren’t any trailers. But the most important aspect of what we do is to create a welcoming and friendly environment for all. Our Sensory-Friendly Film Screenings program was launched two years ago at our annual Tumbleweeds Film Festival for families affected by autism or other sensory disabilities

When Khumba, a young zebra, is blamed for the sudden drought affecting the land, he teams up with a wildebeest and ostrich to find a legendary waterhole. On his daring quest across the Great Karoo desert, Khumba meets a host of quirky characters and comes face to face with a tyrannical leopard in an epic battle to earn his stripes.
