FLYING FUR is up for an UFF&A award. No screening of the film is scheduled at this event.
More talent than a room full of Oscars hopefuls.
More lens flare than a JJ Abrams film.
More timeless films than a dusty Blockbusters.
Hyperbole may be funny, but the Utah Film Festival is no joke.
Filmmakers and film enthusiasts gather every year from across the world to see the burgeoning talent spilling out of Utah.
Yes, Utah. See, every good thing in California is moving to Utah. Don’t believe us? Utah, known as the Silicon Slopes (see ya, Silicon Valley) has tech firms sprouting up or uprooting and moving here in droves. Comicon and other festivals are having some of their most successful turnouts in charming Salt Lake City, Utah. It was only a matter of time before film festivals in Utah became dominant, and the Utah Film Festival has become one of the most reputed in the film industry.
From humble beginning in 2011, the Utah Film Festival have risen to become one of Utah’s premiere film festivals and award shows.
While boasting legends in the industry like Oscar Nominee Taylor Sheridan (Hell or High Water), Sean Astin (Lord Of The Rings), Lauren Lapkus (Jurassic World, Orange is the New Black, Blended) Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory), the Utah Film Festival have managed to maintain the personal, intimate networking opportunity it has always been. It’s as excellent as it sounds, like biscoff ice cream or an on-set massage therapist.
You decide what you’ll get out of it, when you submit your film and come to the Utah Film Festival
Will you meet your film’s next investor, a distribution company looking for a finished film, a production company looking to option scripts, a casting director looking to hire new talent, producers/directors looking to hire crew, or advertising agencies looking to hire production companies for commercial work?
The opportunity at the Utah Film Festival is, like Batman movie reboots or Red Robin’s fries, endless.
Industry veterans, extraordinary filmmakers, and top-shelf enthusiasts are coming together in such a way that makes it hard to leave…sounds like the right party to be at.
