Discover the magic of movies at the 12th annual Tumbleweeds Film Festival for Kids!

Tumbleweeds is for families who love stories about brave and curious kids from around the world AND it’s for curious kids who want to create awesome content, level up their game, and build skills through film, gaming, film technology, drones, and cameras at the Festival.

Spend the day at Tumbleweeds Film Festival for Kids, with

      • Seven feature length films including a Sundance Film Festival favorite: Aliens Abducted My Parents and Now I Feel Kinda Left Out;

      • Twelve short films including a collection by Utah-based filmmakers and a special collection of curated films from our program, Black, Bold, and Brilliant;

      • Workshops in stop motion animation, virtual reality filmmaking, video game design, prosthetic makeup, and more; and
