LDS Film Festival: March 2-5, 2022
The LDS (aka The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, aka Mormons) Film Festival will take place in Utah and wil be an in-person event, for four days, starting March 2, 2022. It will feature 12 feature length films and dozens of short films and music videos. Details on the official site.
The LDS Film Festival was founded in 2001 on the idea of creating a place for filmmakers to network and showcase their family-friendly and faith-based projects to a supporting and encouraging audience.
The festival will open with Waterman, narrated by Jason Momoa. More about it from ABC4.com:
Waterman explores the life and influence of legendary Hawaiian Duke Kahanamoku and Duke’s legacy as a legendary swimmer, trailblazer, and the undisputed father of modern-day surfing. Through Duke’s incredible athletic accomplishments, personal doctrine of Aloha, and enduring gift to the world of surfing, the film explores a theme that still resonates today – the role of sports in breaking societal barriers – and celebrates his triumphs and philosophy of kuleana [koo-lee-ah-nah], which means responsibility and a deeper sense of relationship that incorporates the spirit of Aloha into our own lives.
Five-time Olympic medalist and Native Hawaiian Duke Paoa Kahanamoku shattered records and brought surfing to the world while overcoming a lifetime of personal challenges.
