All films start at 6 p.m. with the box office opening at 5:30 p.m. Each film will be accompanied by complimentary appetizer from local culinary sponsors.

The festival kicks off at the Great Basin College Theatre February 15, 16, and 17 with a selection of the year’s best films. GBC’s theatre recently updated its technology with a brand-new HD projector and wider screen.

The Festival continues Feb. 23 and 24 at the Western Folklife Center where attendees can see this year’s nominees for Animated, Live Action and Documentary short films before the winners are decided at the 90th Academy Awards.
