HOW TO WATCH FILMS & PARTICIPATE IN FESTIVAL ACTIVITIES

This year’s 2022 Tumbleweeds Film Festival will offer viewing options for everyone — indoor screenings at the Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center in Taylorsville and online screenings at home or on the go.

Our workshops and Clubhouse activities will be held in person at the Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center.

NEW FOR 2022

For 2022, we are offering in-person passes for all-day Saturday and/or Sunday instead of 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.

We will also offer a selection of films online that can be accessed with an online pass.

PURCHASING A PASS

Once the pass availability is live, use your computer, tablet, or mobile device to visit the Festival homepage and select the day(s) you are interested in.  

Some films may be offered in both in-theater and streaming formats. Click the “Buy Pass” button for the version you want. You’ll be taken to our Eventive platform where you can purchase in-theater passes (for the Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center) and “Pre-Order” or “Unlock” access to tickets for streaming films.

ATTENDING A SCREENING OR CLUBHOUSE ACTIVITIES AT THE MID-VALLEY PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

The Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center is a newer venue in the center of the Salt Lake Valley; this is our first year hosting the festival at this location. To attend an in-person screening, visitors will purchase a day pass for Saturday and/or Sunday. This 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.

Passes will be available to purchase on site.

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.

PARTICIPATING IN WORKSHOPS AT THE MID-VALLEY PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

Workshops will be announced mid-April and need to be booked individually (they are not included in the day pass). Clubhouse activities are free and are included in the day passes.

ACCESSING THE VIRTUAL FILM FESTIVAL 

Films for the virtual film festival are available to order on our Eventive channel.

VIEWING THE VIRTUAL FESTIVAL FILMS ON YOUR COMPUTER OR MOBILE DEVICE

If you order before the Festival begins or before a special event takes place you will receive an email when the film or event becomes available. If you are ordering a film during the Festival’s run dates, your film will be ready to view right away on your web browser.

VIEWING ON YOUR TV

If you have an Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku, Firestick, or similar device or smart TV, set your computer, tablet, or mobile device to “airplay” or “cast” to the TV device. This will allow you to share the screen from your computer, tablet, or mobile device to your TV – learn more here.

OR use the Eventive TV app available on Apple TV or Roku, once you have purchased films through your web-browser*, your content will automatically appear on the app – learn more here.

*Please note that you must order all films through a web browser, the app is just for watching films. Additionally, all special events will require the use of a web browser.
