“Woodbury Film Festival celebrates bold visions and powerful voices.”

The 2019 Woodbury Film Festival is set to take place in Salt Lake City, Utah on March 8-10th to show off independent filmmakers who work endlessly to share their vision and story with the world.

Independent filmmakers have incredible talent and are seemingly fearless.

Many forget the role film has in amplifying thoughts and expanding empathetic emotions for our family, friends and stranger friends.

Simply put, films seen at film festivals such as the 2019 Woodbury Film Festival show how creatives take risks.

For example, many independent films bleed inspiring truths, ones that can make you feel a slew of emotions.

Positive Celebrity reached out to Dezi Barr. She shared the vision of the festival.

I think our mission, events, and presenting this as a polished festival that focuses on bold, risk-taking, and challenging films is important to our success.

We find it important to be inclusive of all art forms and aim to bring filmmakers and artists of all levels together by celebrating visionaries. This year we bring music and film together.

Next year we will incorporate a theater act and a live figure painting; And we’ll be expanding from there. We’re excited to see the transformation and realization of how we can all relate to one another on some level.

That’s why PCG magazine is excited to announce these independent films at The 2019 Woodbury Film Festival.

Tickets are available for purchased on the official Woodbury Film Festival website.
