Davey Fest is a 3-day short film festival located in downtown Salt Lake City. Utilizing a blend of theater and alternative venues, such as bars, breweries and eating establishments, Davey fest is a fun way to get to know your fellow filmmakers and enjoy our Salty little city in the Wasatch Mountains. In addition to submitted short films, our Davey grant recipients will be screening their films in either completed or work-in-progress stages.

Films can be narrative, documentary, animation, or music videos. Runtimes under 15 minutes preferred. You do not need to be present at the festival for your film to be chosen.

Please designate if you are from Utah, or currently reside in Utah, as there may be a Utah film block.

You agree that if accepted, your film, and any stills from it, can be used by The Davey Foundation for marketing purposes.
