The Logan Film Festival has upped its game to provide better-quality films this year, said Jesse Budd, one of the directors of the festival.
The film festival will take place Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 25-27, in the Ellen Eccles Theatre, the Dansante Theatre and at Death Ray Comics. It will feature films from around the world as well as from Utah.
Budd, who graduated from Utah State in May with a degree in marketing, said the board booked better films by being more involved in selecting which ones will enter the festival. In the past, there were about 10 people who pre-screened all 150 submissions and rated them on a scale from one to 10, he said. The board would then look at which films had the highest scores and choose those without watching them. However, the board selected them differently this year.
