News and Updates from Kane County, Utah
DocUtah Commons taking place September 15, 2:00 p.m. at Crescent Moon
: Digital Media
Every year, DocUtah and the Center for Education, Business and the Arts (CEBA) sponsors the Commons involving viewing films selected to inspire thought about important issues relating to rural communities. This year’s Commons is entitled “Kabul to Kanab”. “Kabul to Kanab” is a unique opportunity to view several short films (approximately eight minutes each) by young filmmakers in Afghanistan. The young Afghan filmmakers were given digital cameras and free rein to film anything they wanted about the communities where they lived. The outcomes of their documentary film making efforts are poignant snapshots of life in a war torn nation. Following the films screenings, Michael Sheridan, the mastermind behind this marvelous project entitled “Fruit of their Labor” will join other aspiring local filmmakers competing in Kane County’s “Little Hollywood Shootout.”
The “shootout” is a quick turnaround digital media competition sponsored by CEBA and the winners of the competition will be announced later that evening. The filmmakers will be joined by Matt Brown, director of Kane County’s economic development office who has worked to establish a digital media laboratory staffed by students at Kanab High School. The panel will discuss the impact young filmmakers can have in addressing social and economic needs of their community and future plans to promote digital media in Kanab and Kane County. The panel discussion will be moderated by CEBA Chairperson Ed Meyer and is offered at no charge to attendees.
