Spring has almost sprung. While you’re waiting for the buds to appear, don’t let the March chill keep you inside. Utah Valley always has something going on — whether it’s a musical performance, sporting events or a random affair – and you shouldn’t miss it. Here are five weekend best bets for entertainment.

LDS Film Festival

Lights, camera, action! See LDS films before they are released in theaters this upcoming year. The 16th Annual LDS Film Festival doesn’t only showcase movies, but also has presentations by local directors such as Rob Diamond and T.C. Christensen. See the entire LDS Film Festival schedule here.

When: March 1–4
Where: SCERA
Cost: $8 for individual events; $20 for day passes (see prices here)

“Once in the Time of Trolls”

Damsel in distress takes on the heroine role as Katrina seeks to rescue her prince from the evil Troll Princess. Receiving guidance from the Four Winds, Katrina sets out on her expedition. This UVU production is a “sensory friendly performance,” meaning it is family-friendly with lower sound levels and more accommodations.

Where: Covey Center for the Arts

“Last Train to Nibroc”

When two strangers meet on a train carrying deceased American writers Nathaniel West and F. Scott Fitzergald, they make plans to attend the Nibroc Festival despite living in different states. As they get to know each other, these love birds seem to be flying in different directions with their dreams, but can the Nibroc Festival help bring them together?

When: Feb. 16 – March 11 at 7:30 p.m.
Where: Covey Center for the Arts
Cost: $16 general admission; $14 for seniors/students/military
