Utah Film Center needs volunteers! We have opportunities for you to assist us with box office & ticketing, clubhouse & workshop activities, event load in & load out, crowd management, general Festival support, and more. Without your help, we couldn’t produce these premier events: Tumbleweeds, the only independent, international film festival for children & youth in the Mountain West and Damn These Heels, Utah’s only LGBTQ film festival. We thank you for your support! Sign up today!
