Community

The Utah Filmmakers and Actors Facebook group was created by UFA™ Board Member Ben Hawker in 2007. While The Utah Filmmakers™ Association existed separately since 2002, it does not have a formal membership structure. Instead, after being invited to help Admin the Facebook group, we have worked to develop it into an effective and thriving platform and promote it as the de facto online forum for collaboration and promotion for professional and novice filmmaker alike. We're very grateful for the service that it provides.


The Utah Filmmakers and Actors Slack Channel was set up by Cameron Bullock and Dan Herbas in 2018 as an additional means for filmmakers to connect. The UFA™ works to encourage, facilitate and promote innovative means for filmmakers to collaborate and create.



Since 2007, Utah Filmmaker™ Brian Higgins brought The 48 Hour Film Project to Salt Lake City. The annual film competition in which teams of filmmakers are assigned a genre, a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue, and have 48 hours to create a short film containing those elements.

The UFA™ has proudly supported Team Mega Hippo Productions, lead by Annie Tonkovich and Nate Berry by providing numerous props, set dressing, filmmaking equipment and sundries as well as the myriad advantages that come with The Production Support Kit™.

Central Utah 4-H Filmmakers was an after-school program that operated in Sanpete County, teaching local youth about filmmaking through the production of a series of shorts called “Phil & Friends” that was broadcast on CentraCom’s Local Channel 10. We also operated a small studio space courtesy of Wasatch Academy.



One of the first short films our organization produxed was The Christmas Stockings, shot in various locations in Mt. Pleasant.


Our organization also participated in a number of events in Sanpete including Mt. Pleasant's soapbox derby as well as Independence Day and Pioneer Day parades.
