The coming iteration of LiFE FEST PARK CITY must now, by definition, have a very different presentation. Much of our presence and viewing will be on line. As situations develop we will be adjusting the physical, geographical presentations.

This is the Park City iteration of the amazing Life Film Fest, Hollywood (now in its thirteenth year). Our limited screen and scheduling situation in Hollywood @ Raleigh Studios on Melrose, as well as the nature of our independent producers required us to satisfy the Park City clamor!

Prospector Lodge Theater, in the heart of Park City, and a principle Sundance venue, is our screen home in Park City, UT!
Life Fest is THE film festival dedicated to showcasing films that affirm the intrinsic worth of innocent human life, and the profound significance of each life.

Life Fest Film Festival Park City will cater to the more independent and international film maker. Unlike our facilities in Hollywood, (Raleigh Studios and Family Theater on Sunset) the Park City festival is surrounded by the beautiful lodging situation of Prospector Lodge and Conference Center, in the heart of Park City's famous mountain hospitality. As in Sundance, the venue is ideal for meeting and networking in a relaxed and cordial setting.
In the post-Covid world, an online iteration has been included and films wil be individually streamed and available for on-line voting.

Entries from around the world will be showcased, each of which convey the theme that every human life has intrinsic value.

Life Fest draws support from throughout the entertainment industry, actors, producers, directors and those involved at every level of production and distribution.

Life Fest Park City provides opportunity for learning, networking, and collaboration amongst those who are working to bring high production values to inspiring film.
