Davey Fest is presented by The Davey Foundation and supported by Utah Film Commission, Salt Lake County ZAP, Salt Lake City Arts Council, and Utah Film Center.
Davey Fest is a four-day short film festival that brings filmmakers and film lovers together in downtown Salt Lake City. Celebrate the ten-year anniversary of The Davey Foundation in 2023 with a review of the films and filmmakers supported by Davey grants over the last decade.
The Davey Foundation supports emerging filmmakers through grant funding, equipment lending, screening opportunities, and mentorship with established filmmakers. It supports the Salt Lake City community by bringing cutting-edge films to local venues.
The Davey Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt entity, was created in memory of actor, director, producer, musician, and community activist David Fetzer, who passed away at age 30 from an accidental prescription painkiller overdose. Collaborating with others in music, theatre, and film, David lit a fire in all who came within his sphere of influence. Named one of The Salt Lake Tribune’s eight Emerging Artists in 2011 (at the age of 28), it is fitting that we dedicate our endeavors to helping other emerging artists.
