The 2019 Sundance Film Festival is winding down this weekend and some many amazing films had the opportunity to shine over the last few days. As the Festival Host State, Utah Film Commission gave attendees who visited the Festival Co-op in Park City the chance to experience some of the iconic films and locations that make Utah a favorite destination for filmmakers and outdoor exploration. We also highlighted our Utah Film Tour by providing an interactive look at films that have been made throughout Utah over the years. Visit to experience the Utah Film Tour.

We also want to congratulate Utah-based director and screenwriter, Robert Machoian who was presented the Short Film Special Jury Award for Directing for The MINORS. The film depicts a slice of life about a grandpa and his grandsons, the future and the past.
