About The UFA™


The Utah Filmmakers™ Association (UFA™)a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, licensed by the Utah Department of Commerce Division of Consumer Protection—has served the filmmaking community and the public with educational programs, lectures, screenings and sponsorships. It  continues this support by professionally engaging aspiring filmmakers to learn industry standards and the requisite business aspects of the craft by endorsing established agencies, programs and associate organizations that provide the knowledge, tools and resources needed to transition from local filmmaking enthusiasts to professionals in Utah’s film industry. The UFA™ facilitates  these efforts through online forums, collaboration with other film-related organizations and businesses, and through practical application of industry standards through the production of original content with its production division, Section One Entertainment. The organization endeavors to raise the bar when it comes to defining the term “Utah Filmmaker™.”
