The inaugural four-day 2016 Park City International Film Festival has announced their lineup of films to screen August 10 to 13, 2016 at the Eccles Theater in Park City, UT. Complete line up is available online.

The selected films range from micro-budgets to large-scale productions, by first-time directors and notable veterans. Laughing in the Dark, the story of one woman’s journey through depression, grief, hope and victory told with the emotional intensity and humor that only Chonda Pierce can deliver is sure to be an audience favorite. Giovanni and the Water Ballet is about a ten-year old following his dream to be the first boy to compete in the Dutch Synchronized Swimming Championships. Under the Blood Red Sun examines a 13-year-old Japanese boy and the monumental adversity he faces in 1941 Hawaii, when the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor. A similarity among each film slated to screen is the dynamic power to inspire and teach.
