Saving North

Saving North is the story of a struggle for human and cultural survival in the mysterious and insular world of the Russian North. An outsider from England, photographer Richard Davies, enters this mysterious and vast region of the world with the hope of documenting both the glory and the tragic demise of its rapidly disappearing Wooden Churches. As Davies meets and becomes friends with the some of his Russian photo subjects, he finds himself getting emotionally involved with their struggle. He decides to put down his camera and get involved with church restoration.

            Early on in our story Davies befriends the famed Russian architect Alexander Popov who is deeply involved in working to preserve and share with the world the beauty and value of these ancient structures. Popov has uniquely discovered and reinvigorated both the tools and processes that restore life back to the North. But it’s an uphill battle against strong and powerful forces.

            Together, Davies and Popov uncover the circumstances that led to the demise of the churches, and then join a small but growing group of passionate Russian citizens and outsiders from all walks of life who join the cause of Saving North.


Saving North Finalist at Great Cinema Now

"Great Cinema Now" International Script and Film Festivals proudly accepts Scripts and Films entries on FilmFreeway, the world's #1 way to enter film festivals and creative contests.
Unlike other festivals, if your initial submission doesn't meet the qualifications, you can revise and resubmit for further review (if we receive the corrections before the applicable deadlines).
The Great Cinema Now Script and Film Festival is a showcase for discerning audiences of great movies with wide appeal, selected for great story, great cinematography, great acting, great soundtracks, etc. Your winning movies and scripts will be used as examples to inspire future filmmakers as they learn and apply their craft.
This is the Second Year for the Great Cinema Now Film Festival. Great Cinema Now had great success in 2019 and this year we are taking it to a newer and higher level. This year we are including a feature-length screenwriting competition for great movies in progress and continuing the feature film competition.. For both scripts and films, you will need to provide metadata for your submissions, such as loglines for your script, and a script for your film. Having your film or script reviewed will be free as long as you help review other submissions.
Once your script meets the review criteria, it will be a winner of the screenwriting portion of the contest. Winning scripts are eligible to be introduced to our affiliates for production, funding and distribution. Your completed films that meet our criteria are also eligible to move to the next level for possible funding or distribution.
Our objective is to find the best completed movies, and to help them get distributed widely. We also are working hard to find the best movies in progress, so we can do everything possible to help them be produced and widely distributed.
Due to the covid-19 virus we are moving the event to a larger venue where we can still join together, but still practice safe social distancing. The live festival will be held at the Summerhill Event Center in Saratoga Springs, Utah.
We also have a strong connection to the Orem, Utah Public Library where we held our first festival in July 2019 in the Library's Media Center auditorium. Great Cinema Now also taught a film making workshop for teens in September in the Library's Makerspace.
Submit your movies and scripts to show us what you've got. Let us help you become more well known. See our beautiful website ( for more information and resources that can help you improve your craft. If you are an expert, we would love to have you contribute to our site.

Winning films for this festival receive extensive coverage and exposure. We will work with the library to help advertise the events. We'll have great attendance, but thousands more will see information about your films in the library flyers and online calendar. We will also use a number of other marketing and advertising options as we prepare for this event.
We plan on providing a streaming option our guests can watch (with the permission of the winning filmmakers). Our plan is to also showcase and have artistic readings of the winning scripts (based on interest of the audience and permission of the filmmakers) as part of our offering.

Join us this year, and grow with us next year as we hope to move back to the Library's new 500 seat Library Hall Auditorium (currently under construction).
