Experience an exclusive and intimate celebration of the art of film and the joy of exquisite cuisine, all under one roof. Our boutique hospitality ensures a memorable journey.
Explore a diverse selection of independent films from around the world, encompassing documentaries, student projects, micro shorts, and feature-length gems. These carefully curated films are designed to inspire, entertain, and ignite meaningful conversations.
But it's our Food Frenzy that truly elevates this event. Every ticket grants you access to at least two delectable catered meals from local eateries, served prior to the film screenings. Indulge in an abundance of candy and drinks, making this a true all-inclusive fusion of entertainment and gastronomy.
For those with a taste for adventure, our festival always includes a local hike or outdoor activity, providing a delightful sampling of the scenic area.
This innovative take on the traditional film festival is the brainchild of founders Britt and Jeff Roth. Drawing from their diverse careers, they have woven together a spectacular event that grows bigger and better with each passing year.

Founders & Event Organizers
Britt & Jeff Roth
In 2018, we embarked on a new chapter in Kanab, a town steeped in the legacy of "Little Hollywood," with hundreds of film productions to its name. Surprisingly, a multi-day film festival was missing from this cinematic haven, so we decided to create one. In 2019, our inaugural festival unfolded at the historic Parry Lodge, and we are proud to say that we are still going strong, refining our niche in the festival industry; only possible with the help of a remarkably talented team!
Britt brings a wealth of event planning experience, while Jeff, with a Master's in Animation from SCAD, has shared his film and motion graphic knowledge at the college level and is an award winning filmmaker.
In addition to our festival efforts, we're proud owners of Dark Sky, a boutique RV park nestled in Kanab.

A mother first then everything else. Jack of all trades give me a job and I’ll do my best to make it great. I’ve always loved fashion, photography, thrifting and of course, horses. Vegas native, Kanab local, this is home. I work in production in the film industry- wardrobe assistant, art director, AC and PA. I recently started an animal for hire business called Little Hollywood Horses, and I'm currently working on bringing horseback riding therapy to the local special needs, disabled, and veteran communities. My 14 year old has said she looks up to me because “she knows how to live her life”. Best compliment ever!
This is my fourth year working with KFF and it’s such a pleasure. I learn so much from Jeff and Britt, they support me whole heartedly in my endeavors.
Hello, my name is Stacy Cox and I am a photographer located in Kanab, UT. I have been a professional photographer for the last 10 years, but my passion for photography goes back decades. I see my camera as a tool to connect, to create, to speak, and to give back.
I attended my first Kanab Film Fest last year as an attendee and I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to experience this year’s fest from my camera’s eye view
John Crowley is a drummer turned audio engineer turned business owner/audio engineer/producer who sometimes plays drums turned live sound and tech support for the Kanab Film Fest. He looks forward to bringing all he's turned (minus drumming most likely) to help the Fest.
Terri Henry loves the energy and synergy of film. Fascinated by a History of Film course at UCLA and inspired by her friends’ student film projects at USC, Terri was naturally drawn to the Sundance Film Festival after moving to Utah’s Wasatch Front.
From standing in line in the snow for rush tickets to listening to creative team discussions one year, to being a guest of honor at the premier of The Case Against 8 at her last time there, that film festival had her hooked!
On settling into Kanab last year, Terri was thrilled to find the Kanab Film Fest and spent every minute she could volunteering in any way needed. It is her honor to now be part of the KFF leadership team.
