Tumbleweeds Film Festival kicked off with a party at Pierpont Place and a screening of Knight Rusty at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center on March 14. At the party, families enjoyed dinner and taking photos in front of a Tumbleweeds backdrop. Prior to the film, Utah Film Center Executive Director Holly Yocom and Artistic Director Patrick Hubley gave their thoughts on the film and the festival. Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams and his daughter Kate introduced the film, which was the first Tumbleweeds film shown in 3D. Along with Tumbleweeds, the Utah Film Center hosts free screenings and discussions across the state.
