Why Support Utah Film Center
The Film Center is a place for individuals, artists, and communities looking to use the power of film to bring people together through stories and ideas.
Audiences appreciate our mostly free film programs, statewide presence, efforts to co-create measures of success, and our commitment to authentic representation. Our events are more than just films—they offer opportunities to hear from filmmakers and notable local figures about the craft, story, and perspective.
Educators value our media arts curriculum for the creative ways it engages students with learning, ease of use, and alignment with state standards. They also appreciate our innovative and long-lasting professional development opportunities, top-quality instructors, and continuous support.
Filmmakers appreciate our fiscal sponsorship program, connecting with audiences, access to technology, and education, as well as the sense of community derived from collaborative co-working spaces.
Your support helps us offer enriching, affordable programs that benefit tens of thousands of Utah residents and hundreds of filmmakers each year.
