Utah Film Center offers artist support with an alternative program: fiscal sponsorship. Artists and filmmakers in need of funding can apply to our fiscal sponsorship program and approved mission-aligned film projects are eligible to use the Film Center’s nonprofit status, rather than establishing their own. We are proud to announce that two of these projects will be making their world premieres at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
