Film Changes Lives
Utah Film Center’s members, artists, staff, board, volunteers, partners, and community members believe in the incredible power of film to change the world. Through our unique non-commercial model we bring powerful storytelling to audiences in Utah, create forums for local audiences to discuss ideas with visiting artists and professionals, further teachers’ professional development with trainings in digital technology and filmmaking, nurture the next generation to develop media literacy and critical thinking through in-classroom presentations, and support new works by artists through Fiscal Sponsorship.

We are excited for all that is ahead for Utah Film Center and ask that you please consider making a year-end gift to help us sustain these meaningful programs - 86% of which are completely free. 

Thank you for being part of our story!
- Utah Film Center staff
