Following the criteria listed below, mail or bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10, Salt Lake City, UT 84111.

Flamenco del Lago presents: Flamenco de Verano: Suben y Bajan. Our professional trio, Katie Sheen-Abbott (bailora), Jake Abbott (guitarist and cantaor), and Sandy Meek (guitarist) present traditional Flamenco dance and music in the intimate setting of the Regent Street Black Box. From the mournful and cursed palos, the Seguiriyas and the Peteneras, to the lively beach songs of Cádiz, the Cantiñas, we’ll explore the dynamic range of Flamenco. Enjoy fiery footwork, beautiful costumes, heartfelt music and passionate performances this summer at Flamenco del Lago’s production, Flamenco de Verano: Suben y Bajan.
As summer brings us those long sunshine-filled days, Utah Film Center is excited to announce the return of its Free Outdoor Summer Film Series at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City. Pull out your favorite blanket, grab those delicious treats, and enjoy the long-awaited soft warm breezes of a perfect Utah summer night.
Each week will take you on an epic journey — riding whitewater in the world’s deepest canyon, help a fearless shell look for its home, swoon with comic book nerds looking for love, and take risks with a big-hearted Australian environmentalist who has even bigger fishy friends. We’ll also be exploring the magic of cinema with legendary rock and soul icons, two volcanologists, and a breakdance crew that is hotter than a St. George day in August.
Friday, June 30 @ 8:00 pm
Godspeed, Los Polacos!
Film Synopsis: During the Cold War, Poland’s youth looked for any way to break away from the monotony of life under Communist rule. In the City of Krakow, a group of university students formed a kayaking club as a tool to explore their local rivers and avoid participation in Communist parades and rallies.
Godspeed, Los Polacos! follows an epic two-year journey that culminates in a record-breaking first descent of the world’s deepest canyon, and finds the kayakers in Soviet cross-hairs after they leverage their newfound fame to fight for democracy in their homeland.
You can find more information about the FREE film screening and movie trailer at: https://utahfilmcenter.org/event/godspeed-los-polacos/
– Doors open at 8 pm
