Through the Lens

Through The Lens is the flagship film program of Utah Film Center that has presented fascinating documentaries, spectacular narratives, and special film events since launching in 2011.

This year’s selections are an exciting collaboration with the University of Utah’s Department of Film and Media Arts to present an extended exploration of what many Film Lovers regard as the “Classic Films” in cinematic history. RadioWest’s Doug Fabrizio hosts conversations about the film with featured local experts – at the heart of these conversations is the desire to answer “Why is this film a classic and who is it a classic for?” Join us as we probe the filmmaker’s creative process, the decisions they’ve made, and the cultural impact these films have today.

 

Through The Lens screenings are presented in partnership with:

KUER 90.1RadioWest

Through The Lens screenings are funded in part by:
