The Magna Arts Council is presenting a special free event to recognize our local film & video creators and the talented artist who perform in films and on TV.
Scheduled for Saturday, September 13th 2014, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Magna Library, film lovers will gather to share their interest in local productions and talent. This event is open for anyone who wants to see clips from local productions and even hear from actors and film makers (to be announced) talk about their creations and process.
Local Arts Event News:
The biggest single event on the local arts calendar is the annual Magna Main Street Arts Festival coming up on Saturday, August 23rd. As always, it is free to attend and enjoy the wide-ranging concerts and art displays. But for the full festival experience bring a little cash and sample offerings from specialty food vendors and merchants of all types. Details at the festival’s facebook page.
Vendor space is still available, and volunteers are needed to help as co-ordinators or general helpers in various positions.
Make it a double-art day in Magna on September 13th. In addition to the “Movies Made in Magna” event, four authors are featured at a Fall Boutique and Book Signing event, which also includes some specialty vendors. Event is at Nonna’s restaurant – conveniently across the street from the Library where the movie event happens. For more details and links to the individual participating authors, see the web page of event organizer and local author Mary Martinez.
** Update - August 21, 2014
“Wild Horses” is a feature film now shooring in various spots around the Salt Lake area, and rumor has it that Magna will be included. Robert Duvall is listed as director and writer, with actors James Franco and Josh Hartnett in leading roles. Duvall himself also appears in a supporting role.
First descriptions include this plot summary: “A female ranger, investigates a decades old murder and brings up the past for a modern-day rancher who must come to terms with his mistakes.”
There is little “official” information on the web about this project so far, but a simple web search finds several mentions from participants and people who live near filming locations.

This is the third in an annual series of “special events” by the non-profit Magna Arts Council to spotlight local arts creators. (The 2012 event featured Books & Authors of Magna, and 2013 spotlighted local artists. Other forms of artistic expression will be highlighted in coming years.)
