      "Maker" Movie Free Screening Event

      You and your family are invited to a special screening of "Maker" a feature-length documentary on the Maker Movement and its impact on society, culture and economy in the U.S. In an effort to grow the Maker Movement across the Saint George area, Utah State University Extension has purchased the educational version of this film with a limited public performance license for this free on-site screening. This screening is by invitational only and is not open to the general public.  Watch the trailer The "Maker” documentary tells a story of the current Maker Movement in America – a new wave of Do-It-Yourself and Do-It-Together culture fueled by passion and powered by the advent of new technologies.   The "Maker Movement," sometimes called the "Third Industrial Revolution," subverts traditional manufacturing by building on innovative concepts such as open source, local manufacturing, crowd funding, and digital fabrication. Breaking the hobbyist movement stereotype, "Maker" delves deep into this ecosystem of design and manufacturing in the Internet era. The film explores the ideas, tools, and personalities that are driving the Maker Movement – and returns with a timely snapshot of one of the transforming influences of the current age.  The producers of this film have conducted extensive interviews of key figures behind headline-making projects, daily practitioners, and observers of the movement, in their effort to piece together what this ecosystem looks like, and present insights on how it can impact society, culture and the economy in the U.S., and the world.
