A Message from the Utah Film Commission:

Utah Film Commission
Last week, there were two stories in the news about how
film production In Utah has begun to crawl back and that more commercials are filming in Utah. We can all agree that none of us could have imagined the world we are living in now, but the Utah film industry has always been good at adapting to changing conditions. With our skilled crew members, professional vendors and diverse landscapes, Utah has the workforce and resources for any type of production.


When Utah began to reopen in May, the Utah Film Commission had already received 140% more production inquiries compared to the previous year and projects that postponed or delayed are starting to resume production in accordance with state and local safety guidelines. You can find a list of many of those projects that are starting to film in Utah in the Current Productions section of our website.


With the unique circumstances of the pandemic, hiring crews and vendors #InUtah and choosing to #FilmInUtah is the best way to keep our industry thriving and we need your help. We want all crew members and vendors based in Utah to update or register in the Utah Film Directory to show off your experience. Anytime the Utah Film Commission receives a production inquiry, we encourage those in-state and out-of-state productions to search the directory for talented Utahns and businesses in our film industry. Now, more than ever, it’s important for the industry to know the many Utah crew members and vendors that are ready to work.


We know that this has been a difficult time for the Utah film industry, but we are all in this together.


Our office wants to hear from you what more we can do to help! Email us at film@utah.gov or message us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn.
