Zero Gravity by Thomas Verrette won Best Feature Documentary at Desertscape festival


Wednesday, June 23rd, through Saturday, June 26th, 2021, at the historic Electric Theater in lovely Southern Utah!

St. George, UT--as well as a handful of its beautiful surrounding areas-- represents grand desert country at its most breathtaking. This, among other things, makes it a perfect spot for a film festival. Attend the fest and then stick around and check out all the incredible sights and sounds southern Utah has to offer.

The Desertscape International Film Festival invites and encourages filmmakers and screenwriters from all around the globe to submit their work--shorts, features, student films, etc. If you're proud of it, submit it! Furthermore, all genres are welcome.

Every film designated an “Official Selection” will be presented in a live theatrical setting to enthusiastic festival attendees over the course of 4 fun-filled days in one of the most beautiful cities in the U.S. And yes, awards will be handed out to the best of the best!

Our inaugural festival saw 35 films, shorts and features, of multiple genres from all over the world, including the world premiere of Jeff Sanders's provocative thriller, "Lay Me Down to Sleep," the Utah premiere of Kyle B. Thompson's touching drama, "The Boy Hero," the Utah premiere of Eric Gordon's unflinching Alzheimer's documentary, "When All That's Left is Love," Will Kindrick's sci-fi romance, "Storm" fresh off its buzz-worthy Tribeca premiere, and the recent brilliant Oscar-nominated short film, "Brotherhood."
Additionally, Desertscape: Year One saw a staggering 60% filmmaker attendance rate, virtually unheard of for a first-year film festival.

What's more, Desertscape continued in 2020 with an epic Year Two lineup that saw over double the submissions and over double the selected entries! Not bad given the strange status of the world over the course of the last year or so.

...And Year Three promises to be even bigger!

If you're a filmmaker, what are you waiting for? Submit your film now! This is a great opportunity to share your work and experience it in a live theatrical setting!
This is a 4-day cinematic event you won't want to miss! Conversations with storytellers and like-minded individuals, filmmaker panels, special industry guests, live music, an awards gala, and of course, a wide variety of films for your viewing pleasure, all in one of the most beautiful cities in the U.S.!

The Desertscape International Film Festival: Celebrating film from around the globe!
*As we continue to navigate through tricky times brought on by the Covid-19 Pandemic, we want to let everyone know that we'd love nothing more than to say that the 2021 festival will happen as planned and without a hitch. While that's certainly the goal, we'll keep everyone updated should the dates change for any reason.

On a final note, no matter your personal feelings on the scope of the pandemic, take proper precautions to keep yourself and everyone around you safe.

Much love to you all from Team Desertscape.
