The fifth annual Salt Lake City Film Festival kicks off with a real-life "Hoosiers" story and finishes with the final film work of a beloved local actor.

The festival runs Thursday through next Sunday at three locations: the Broadway Centre Cinemas (111 E. 300 South), the Tower Theatre (876 E. 900 South) and Brewvies Cinema Pub (667 S. 200 West).

Fourteen feature films and a plethora of short films — including a showcase of local talent — are included in the four-day event.

The opening-night film is "Medora," a documentary that details the struggles of a winless high-school basketball team in a financially crumbling Indiana town. It's directed by Davy Rothbart, a contributor to public radio's "This American Life."

Closing the festival is "Point B," the last film featuring local actor and community organizer David Fetzer. The rest of the cast will be in attendance at the screening, and the festival will be unveiling its first David Fetzer Memorial Award.

Another highlight of the festival is a visit from filmmaker Amy Finkel, who will be showing her documentary "Furever," which focuses on the bonds between people and their pets. Several other filmmakers are expected to attend the festival with their films, particularly in the short-film categories.

Tickets are $5 for matinees, $10 for evening screenings. An all-inclusive pass is available for $50.
