“Doug Snow’s ambiance in Southern Utah with its deserts, mountains, and rock formations holding mammoth power. His paintings reflect that power. They are visionary explorations of air and light…reflecting the unknown on the known. He sees so well.”

This weekend is the 26th Bicknell International Film Festival, fondly known as BIFF. The theme this year is FEAST-ival of Food on Film, and the films will be shown at the Bicknell Theater, 11 East Main Street in Bicknell, beginning at 7:00 p.m. on Friday July 19 and on Saturday July 20. The Friday night film is "The Food of the Gods"; Don Gomes, BIFF producer, claims it is one of the worst movies he has ever seen. It is nicely balanced by the Saturday night "Celebrity Buffet of Food on Film," which is a collection of some of the "best" food scenes of all time. Following the film's showing on Saturday night, the weekend's events will close with an "after party" at Etta Place Cidery & Taproom, 700 West Main Street, in Torrey.

Steven Rosenberg, founder and good food evangelist at Liberty Heights Fresh in Salt Lake City, will be the festival's special guest. He will be participating in various BIFF shenanigans and leading the BIFF Forum at Robbers Roost, 185 West Main Street in Torrey, at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday July 20.

Tickets for both the Friday and Saturday nights events are available at entradainstitute.org. Tickets are limited, so if you haven't already reserved yours, you will want to do that now. BIFF is an experience you won't want to miss!

What are Michael’s key thoughts from his recent book on the Presidency we could take away to ponder and learn more about?

What is your feeling on the Supreme Court today reversing a court decision of 50 years ago. ie Roe vs Wade. Should a court reverse a previous courts decisions?

So glad this conversation was streaming.

“The Entrada Institute is the brainchild of thoughtful, generous, visionary people. Entrada fosters life-affirming interconnections between nature and the arts reminiscent of Friedrich Schelling’s nature is visible spirit, spirit is invisible nature.”

– Scott Abbott, Ph.D

“I see firsthand the value it provides to the community, its residents, and visitors from all corners of the world. Entrada contributes to increasing our appreciation of the natural world and its inhabitants. It also provides a fascinating slate of programs and classes that are open to all. Entrada adds immeasurably to the fabric of this area and deserves our support.”

– Annie Holt, co-owner of The Old House at Center and Main in Torrey

“There are cliff and buttes, mountains and mesas, canyons and valleys, domes and pinnacles, rounded slopes and numberless smaller forms, all painted in a rainbow spectrum of glorious hues, sculptured into … patterns that astonish with strange and endless diversity.”

– Ward Roylance, co-founder, Entrada Institute

“What impressed me about Entrada was honoring and celebrating both our natural and cultural legacies at the local level and along the Colorado Plateau. The Entrada Institute helps protect and preserve the heritage of Wayne County, State of Utah, and Colorado Plateau. Entrada, you are the role model for the future.”

– Rosemary Sucec, Cultural Anthropologist, National Park Service
