Sundance Film Festival » Geralyn Dreyfous will talk storytelling with The Tribune’s Jennifer Napier-Pearce.

Geralyn Dreyfous, the force behind such films as "The Invisible War" and "Born into Brothels," is associated with a remarkable 10 films at Sundance Film Festival 2015 — and The Salt Lake Tribune is inviting Utahns to come behind the scenes with her.

On Thursday, Jan. 8 at 7 p.m., The Tribune's Jennifer Napier-Pearce will talk with the Academy Award-winning producer about storytelling, networking, philanthropy and what drives her passion for film.

Join the conversation at this free, public event at The Leonardo, 209 E. 500 South, Salt Lake City. Seating will be limited.

Dreyfous, founder of the Utah Film Center, has executive producing and producing credits that also include the Emmy-nominated "The Day My God Died" and multiple film festival winners, such as "Kick Like a Girl" and "Miss Representation."

The new Sundance films in which Dreyfous played a role include "Prophet's Prey," a look at the power wielded by imprisoned polygamist Warren Jeffs and "In Football We Trust," which follows four teen boys from Utah's Pacific Islander community.

The event is co-sponsored by the Utah Film Center and The Leonardo.
