How to Fest

HOW TO WATCH FILMS & PARTICIPATE IN FESTIVAL ACTIVITIES

The 2024 Tumbleweeds Film Festival will offer Friday Kid’s Saturday in-person screenings at the Viridian Event Center in West Jordan.

Our workshops and Clubhouse activities will be held in person at the Viridian Event Center.

NEW FOR 2024

For 2024, we are offering VIP passes for in-person screenings, as well as free individual tickets to each film. Access to see the films is first come, first served, but we anticipate that everyone with a pass will be able to see the films they want.

PURCHASING A VIP PASS

Use your computer, tablet, or mobile device to visit the Festival homepage and select the VIP pass.  

Click the “Buy Pass” button. You’ll be taken to our Eventive platform where you can purchase in-theater VIP passes for Viridian Event Center.

ATTENDING A SCREENING OR CLUBHOUSE ACTIVITIES AT THE VIRIDIAN CENTER

The Viridian Event Center in West Jordan is in center of the Salt Lake Valley; this is our second year hosting the festival at this location. To attend an in-person screening, visitors will purchase a VIP pass or individual tickets to screenings. The VIP pass will be used to access the festival films throughout the day. Access to see the films is first come, first served, but we anticipate that everyone with a pass will be able to see the films they want. The passes also include fun Clubhouse activities.

Individual tickets will be available to reserve on site, but it’s recommended that tickets are reserved in advance of the festival.

LOCAL RESTAURANTS AND BUSINESS

Please check out our list of local restaurants where you can grab a bite to eat before or after your film screening or workshop. Also check out a few local kid-focused businesses who provide fun activities similar to the Clubhouse and workshop activities.

INDIVIDUAL TICKET PRICING – FREE FOR 2024

Individual screening tickets are free for 2024 thanks to a partnership with Salt Lake County Library. 

FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILMS WITH SUBTITLES

To enhance our young viewers’ appreciation of foreign-language movies, most films are screened in their original language with English subtitles. Individual headsets will be available with subtitle readers reading the subtitles aloud to increase each child’s comprehension.
