Receiving much praise among film directors, ZIFF is quickly becoming one of favorite vacation film festivals in the country. In 2005 the festival grew to showing more than 70 films. The 2nd annual Zion Film Festival will be held at the Opera House in St. George, and at Flanigan’s Inn and the new Canyon Community Center in Springdale, Utah February 23 – 25, 2007. With a “Road Movie” theme, ZIFF will showcase special screenings filmmed on the road in the midwest in addition to the films in competition. It all closes with a big Indie Awards Ceremony on Sunday as the slogan demands “Road Trip in the name of Independent film… Oscar Weekend”
