Utah's biggest film fest never has much going in the way of family-friendly films. Luckily, Utah Film Center caters to parents looking for independent film to enjoy with the kids. The third annual Tumbleweeds Film Festival for Children and Youth is coming.

The festival will include 11 feature films from seven countries, including Latvia/Estonia, Germany and Ireland. Foreign films are screened in their original languages with English subtitles, which will be read aloud by a subtitle reader younger kids can listen to with special headsets. In addition to the films, SpyHop Productions will be at the fest to put on filmmaking workshops. 

The event will be held Feb. 15–17 at Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, 138 W. Broadway, SLC.
