DECEMBER 2018 – With 2018 winding to an end, I wanted to take a minute to reflect on some of the year’s highlights and also send a big shout out to all of the talented people who worked in film this past year.An estimated $63 million was spent in statethis year and 16 diverse productions received film incentives to shoot in Utah, including features, documentaries and television series from in-state and out-of-state producers. Consequently, over 1,300 local jobs were created and over 550 film permits were issued across the state.
SALT LAKE CITY (January 4, 2019) – Beginning January 24th, filmmakers and film lovers from around the world will descend upon Salt Lake City, Park City, and Sundance Mountain Resort for the 10-day Sundance Film Festival. One of Utah Film Commission’s top priorities is to ensure that locals can take advantage of the festival experience that takes place every January in their backyard.
Formed in 1974, the Utah Film Commission is part of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development under the Utah Office of Tourism, Film and Global Branding and is a member of the the Association of Film Commissioner’s International.
The Utah film Commission markets the entire State Of Utah for film, television and commercial production by promoting the use of local professional cast & crew, support services, locations and the Motion Picture Incentive Program.
