Four Christmas film events, Christmas on the Silver Screen, hosted by the SCERA Center for the Arts in partnership with the LDS Film Festival.

If you are in the Christmas mood, and have some free time Saturday, the LDS Film Festival is presenting its first ever Christmas event.

Christmas on the Silver Screen, hosted by the SCERA Center for the Arts in partnership with the LDS Film Festival, is presenting four Christmas themed family events from 1-10 p.m. Saturday.

The 7:30 p.m. feature film, “Funny Thing About Love,” is not just a special screening but the Utah premiere featuring some familiar performers.

The movie centers around Samantha Banks, on top of the world, with a successful business and a handsome fiancé. But over one Thanksgiving Holiday with her scheming family, her whole world is thrown into a tailspin by inviting ex-boyfriend — “the one that got away.”

“Funny Thing About Love” stars Jon Heder, notably of “Napoleon Dynamite,” and Summer Bellessa from “Deal or No Deal.” Also in the film are Studio C’s Jason Gray and Brooke White from season seven of “American Idol.”

The film was written and directed by Adam White and there will be a Q&A after the show.

Other Christmas films include:

Christmas Break-in

Description: Today was supposed to be one of the best days ever for nine-year-old Izzy Rush. But now, on the last day of class before Christmas break, she has been left alone at school. To make matters worse, the biggest blizzard this town has ever seen is hitting full force. Which is why three bumbling crooks on the run decide to take shelter in the seemingly empty school. When Izzy discovers that the criminals are holding her friend and school custodian, Ray, hostage, she decides it’s up to her to save the day. But what can a nine-year-old girl do? You’d be surprised!
