As the first week of 2012 is wrapping up, the new year already looks interesting. The 2012 SoALFF wheels are starting to turn and we’ll be up to full speed in no time.

We Bought A Zoo at Crescent until Jan 12
Acclaimed filmmaker Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous) directs an amazing and true story about a single dad who decides his family needs a fresh start, so he and his two children move to the most unlikely of places: a zoo. With the help of an eclectic staff, and with many misadventures along the way, the family works to return the dilapidated zoo to its former wonder and glory.
Showtimes are listed at The Crescent Theater
Also, I’ll soon be posting some 2011 SoALFF alumni news and information about SoALFF in Park City!
Again, I can not thank you enough for your continued support of SoALFF throughout 2011 and we are all looking forward to an exciting 2012.
