Thank you for our tremendously successful 45th year! With such strong support from our local communities and sponsors, we are proud to announce the 46th Utah Asian Festival in 2023.
Our event benefits all Utahns, offering a glimpse at how traditional practices have been preserved and upheld in our state.

Our celebration is an opportunity for all to reunite with old friends; build new friendships; meet our various communities, leaders, and elders; and seek new opportunities to be involved and support our diverse Utah Asian communities.
This year’s festival will honor our communities through traditional and modern performances, children’s activities, and spotlights on cultural, nonprofit, and commercial organizations.

Calling all music lovers to come and join the Utah Film Center on Wednesday, June 14 at 7 pm at The City Library in Downtown Salt Lake for a free film screening of Squaring the Circle (The Story of Hipgnosis).
Presented as part of the Utah Film Center’s Through the Lens Series and in partnership with KUER’s Radiowest, Squaring the Circle (The Story of Hipgnosis) is a documentary that takes you behind the scenes of the duo who created some of the most recognizable album covers in history like Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here.
Hipgnosis went from making covers for their mates (the likes of David Gilmour and Syd Barrett) to establishing themselves as the driving force behind visual identities of some of the most popular artists of the 1970s (think Led Zeppelin and Paul McCartney). Their methods were unconventional, their budgets often unreasonable, but they were fearless visionaries who artfully manipulated photographic images long before computer graphics became ubiquitous.
After the screening will be a Q&A moderated by KUER’s RadioWest host, Doug Fabrizio with producers Trish D. Chetty and Ged Doherty and local artist Jann Haworth, co-creator of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover.

In this workshop, participants experience accelerated collaborations through brief, brainstorming sessions and use of the Risograph as a generative tool for making. The ideation process begins with interpreting a story from audio samples and continues with prompts that allow participants to accidentally recreate/rethink/mash-up stories. These audio stories and a shared reserve of found images serve as catalysts for small groups to visualize an intersection of the narratives and develop two-page spreads for inclusion in a collective booklet. Each participant leaves with a copy or two of the editioned book and the skills to print on the spectacular Risograph.

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.

Little Richard: I Am Everything
Like a quasar burning past the gaslight, director Lisa Cortés’ eye-opening documentary explodes the whitewashed canon of American pop music. Little Richard: I Am Everything shines a clarifying light on the Black, queer origins of rock ’n’ roll, and establishes the genre’s big bang: Richard Wayne Penniman. Testimonials from legendary musicians and cultural figures, Black and queer scholars, Penniman’s family and friends, and interviews with the artist himself all exuberantly reclaim a history that was willfully appropriated by white artists and institutions.
You can find more information about the film screening and movie trailer at: https://utahfilmcenter.org/event/little-richard-i-am-everything/
– Doors open at 8 pm
– Movies begin at dusk
Outdoor Film Series takes place on the east side of Liberty Park, just north of the Chase Home Museum near the middle of the park.
