The Utah Film Awards is more than a film festival and competition. We are a family of filmmakers that support each other and provide educational opportunities throughout the year to help one another reach personal and professional goals in the entertainment industry.
We recognize excellent storytelling, inspire creativity, and unify our community through the power of cinema.
We do this by providing screenings, parties, luncheons, workshops and group support for one another.

Thank you so much to the Utah Film Awards for providing an inclusive atmosphere. Everyone was so welcoming and kind. They provided educational panels and gave us the opportunity to put them into action then and there. I left overjoyed. Can't wait to do it again.
This festival surprised me with the wonderfulness of itself. Intimate, welcoming and wholly approachable I have never been to a festival that felt more accepting, more familial, more approachable than this one.
