Iconic America (website)is an 8-episode docuseries by David Rubenstein for PBS that explores America’s 400-year history through a close examination of iconic national symbols such as the Hollywood Sign, Fenway Park, American cowboys, and the Statue of Liberty — all indelible artifacts, places, or archetypes. Each episode tells the story of an American icon to reveal its origins, significance, and the arc of its resonance and meaning.
We want to hear from Utahns about local people, places, and things that YOU think are iconic! Send us your short videos that tell YOUR story about Iconic Utah. YOUR icon could be a relative, a neighborhood landmark, or even an idea you feel tells the story of Utah through your eyes.
PBS Utah will host a film festival on August 30 in the Salt Lake City Public Library’s Main Auditorium that will include a variety of short videos, each telling untold Utah stories from diverse and unique perspectives. YOUR Iconic Utah film submission could be featured in this film festival!
