The Fear No Film Festival's Artistic Coordinator, Derek Mellus says, "This year's Fear No Film Festival was a huge success. We shifted our focus on emerging artists and these first time and student filmmakers' work stood toe to toe with some of our program's best. I want to thank all of the filmmakers that submitted their incredible films. I'd like to also thank the Utah Arts Festival staff, its volunteers and Fear No Film's incredible jurors and programming team- without their help, this film festival would not be possible. And an extra special thank you to the cinema loving audiences that came out to enjoy another year of distinctive programming; your collective applause, laughter and your 'oohs and ahhs' were very much appreciated and make it all worthwhile."
