DSU DOCUTAH International Documentary Film Festival celebrates the art of documentary filmmaking. The 2020 Festival runs from November 2 – 7 and includes DOCTalk(tm) sessions and special events. The Festival, which is part of Dixie State University, gives students in its Film degree program the opportunity to interact with professionals in the discipline.

The Festival offers a week of entertaining films from all over the world, as well as year-round programs including monthly DOCUTAH at Pineview film screenings, all of which provide creative, cultural, and educational engagement.

For 11 years, DOCUTAH International Documentary Film Festival has provided attendees with a global experience, bringing quality films and filmmakers from all over the world. Attendees will see films which often are shown nowhere else and have the chance to mix and mingle with producers, directors and the subjects of their films. The Festival is presented by Dixie State University in St. George, Utah. The 2020 festival dates are November 2 – 7. Films are screened at the Megaplex Pineview Theaters and outdoor venues among the red rocks and stunning scenery of Southern Utah and are combined with DOCTalk panels with filmmakers, special events relevant to the films and musical entertainment. Information about the Festival is posted on the Website beginning in August and ticket sales open in August as well.
