Thank you for your support!

In August of 2022, the Utah Film Center celebrated its 20th anniversary. It all started with dreamers who had a plan: to use independent film to build community.

Twenty years later, you have helped us become an indispensable part of Utah’s cultural landscape — providing access to films and important discussions with Through the Lens, Black, Bold and Brilliant, our outdoor film series, and annual festivals; reaching over 14,000 teachers and students around the state each year with our media arts education programs; and providing critical support to nearly 200 international and Utah-based independent filmmakers through our artist support programs.

At 20 years, we’re excited to own what it means to be a mature organization. In this next phase of the Film Center, we are working to create something truly special — an organization that is at the nexus of the filmmaking industry, media arts education, and arts and culture.

Your financial support allows us to continue to build this ecosystem and to create film-focused programs that serve Utahns throughout the state. When you donate, we know you appreciate this work, you value the experiences you’ve had with the Utah Film Center, and you want others to be able to have those experiences too. Together we can build something special. 

We invite you to join us by donating today!

Producer-level donors (a household with cumulative donations of $2,500 or over between January 1-December 31, 2022) will receive an invitation to our filmmaker brunch during Sundance 2023.

Please select Monthly Payment if you would like to split your donation into monthly sustaining payments. Donations are 100% tax-deductible. Utah Film Center is a public charity recognized as tax-exempt by the IRS under Section 501(c)(3).

Our mission is built on presenting films that leave people profoundly transformed. Time and again we see that people use the power of film to connect, question, explore, process, and heal. By your comments and feedback this year, we know audiences need us more than ever.

“Utah Film Center is a pillar not just for cinematic and media literacy but also for Utah enlightenment.”
