RadioWest Films on PBS Utah
RadioWest Films on PBS Utah curates stories told through cinematic short films. A collaboration between KUER and PBS Utah, RadioWest Films on PBS Utah is a compilation of intimate tales that deepen our understanding of the West and the people who call it home, curated by RadioWest’s current Filmmaker in Residence, Delaney Plant.
The team behind RadioWest has always believed that their most valuable asset is the ability to tell stories. Yes, they produced a radio program, but the team wanted to create films as a way of expanding that storytelling strength to another medium, to reach and meet new people along the way. RadioWest Films makes space for local filmmakers to produce and share a variety of short films and documentaries. It’s an opportunity to create stories in another format and tell them in different ways and give the conversations they conduct on the radio another life — a visual life.
“As visual storytellers ourselves, PBS Utah has long admired the great work being done at RadioWest Films. We are excited to bring these thoughtful and thought-provoking films to our audience, especially those who may not have otherwise found them,” said James Davie, PBS Utah Station Manager.
