Group objects to state money for film festival
A conservative group in Utah called on the state to stop giving taxpayer money to the Sundance Film Festival due to movies it says violate family values. The Sutherland Institute says the state shouldn't spend $300,000 on the festival that promotes films about porn stars and women who have affairs with one another's adult sons. The reference is to the films "Lovelace" and "Two Mothers." The festival generated about $80-million in economic impact for Utah last year.
