Tumbleweeds Festival Field Trips

Get ready for the 2024 Tumbleweeds Festival Field Trips! Whether you’re joining us in person or virtually, we look forward to celebrating films with you featuring a variety of genres from diverse places and cultures around the world, and our very own backyard!

Field trips to the Tumbleweeds Film Festival are a Utah Film Center tradition. Field trips include a screening of a film, guest artists and audience engagement, and a supporting lesson plan to extend the learning in the classroom. 

Field trips are always offered FREE each year to students and teachers thanks to our generous community sponsors. School Bus funding is also available to ensure widespread accessibility to the Salt Lake Valley community! Please feel welcome to contact EDU@utahfilmcenter.org with any questions!
