Utah Film Center couldn’t be more proud of the films it is associated with at Sundance Film Festival 2023. Independent film gives access to emerging filmmakers and independent artists – allowing them to cultivate diverse stories by providing space for marginalized voices. Utah Film Center’s Fiscal Sponsorship program simplifies the funding process for independent filmmakers, allowing them to make movies that connect communities and tell new stories. Visit our Fiscal Sponsorship page for more information.  

We look forward to getting out and enjoying the festival experience this January showcasing a spectacular collection of independent films and gathering with fellow film lovers alike.
