Who can be considered a Utah Filmmaker™?

We have a very broad and inclusive definition of the term Utah Filmmaker.”

It can be anyone with filmmaking ties* to Utah including—but not limited to—Producers, Writers, Directors, Assistant Directors, Cinematographers, Directors of Photography, Camera Operators, ACs, Sound Engineers, Boom Operators, Actors, Extras, Stunt Performers, Animal Wranglers, Cable Wranglers, Gaffers, Grips, Electricians, Caterers, Set Medics, Set Designers, Property Masters, Hair & Make-up Artists, Production Assistants, Animators, SFX/VFX Artists, Composers, and many other individuals filling technical and creative positions. Basically, if you participate in filmmaking in just about any capacity in the state of Utah, then you are—as far as we’re concerned—a Utah Filmmaker.

* We’re primarily filmmakers that live in Utah but there are also a number of filmmakers out there that are originally from the Intermountain West who think of Utah as home, as well as those who divide their time between Utah and other film production markets, from L.A. to New York, and Ontario to New Mexico. Regular participants in Utah-based film festivals from across the country and around the world are also welcome to wear the moniker—literally.
