2016 has been another banner year for film in Utah. Over the past 12 months, we’ve supported 27 feature film and television projects that created 1967 jobs and brought in $59 million in new economic activity.
I am so incredibly proud of Utah’s film industry and the way we are broadcasting ourselves to the world. These 27 projects continue to open the door to new people and new projects and the stellar work you are all doing speaks volumes to producers from around the world.
And now we are starting 2017 on a high note as four of the films shot here in the past year will premiere at Sundance Film Festival next week. This gives us an amazing platform to showcase Utah to the global film industry and we can’t wait to see what this next year brings. Kudos to all of you who work so hard to tell our story. The story truly IS Utah!!
