The Market - Listing category only lists official Market films and they do not have a screening.

SPECIAL SCREENINGS and NEADLINERS
The Film Festival has several films outside the competition. These select screenings will focus on a handful of subjects, and have included American Indian Cinema, the Senior Screen, and Latin American Cinema.
Zion National Park has a rich history of Shishone, Paiute, and Navajo people. All people have a story to tell, seldom seen in the Hollywood movie. The program will include as many Indian stories as it seems fit for both the films in competition as well as the special screenings.
Likewise, the voice of our seniors and the imagination of children is seldom addressed on screen. True inspiration comes from deep within, and not through the stereotypes we are familiar with.
In the future, the festival plans to hold youth filmmaker camps. These workshops will teach leadership skills and independence.
Several documentaries on cultural, humane, and social issues have screened at the Red Rock Film Festival such "Hell and Back Again", "The Interrupters", "Being Elmo", showing that Red Rock is the place to see a quality Doc. Utah is also the home to the Red Rock Film Festival, a spectacular atmosphere to watch film in the southern part of the state.

Attendees come to feel the independent spirit, meet other directors, attend new films, go hiking, see the sites, and when it's all over, they soak their feet in the hot tub or dine out at the many restaurants in the area. It seldom rains in October and November; Southern Utah is considered the Palm Springs north of Las Vegas.
