PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Utah movie fans will have an alternative this weekend to Sundance's film festival.

The 4th annual L-D-S Film Festival kicks off this Saturday at the Provo City Library and University Mall Cinemas.

Four feature films from L-D-S directors will be shown, including the L-D-S boy-band film "Sons of Provo" and L-D-S convert Rick Schroder's directorial debut, "Black Cloud."

Numerous short films and a 24-hour filmmaking contest are also part of the festival.

The festival's founder and organizers overlapped the star-studded Park City-based festival on purpose.

They say the object of the festival is to help L-D-S filmmakers make connections and present their work.

The success of "Napoleon Dynamite" have bolstered the profile of L-D-S filmmakers.
