Independent film is produced around the globe, not just in the bigger film hubs. Learn how to network and cultivate a film community where you live, find regional resources, and gain support for your work. Award-winning Utah-based filmmakers Robert Machoian (THE MINORS), winner of the Sundance Short Film Special Jury Prize for Directing, and Luis Puente (I HAVE NO TEARS, AND I MUST CRY), Sundance Short FIlm Grand Jury Prize Nominee will discuss producing a film in lesser-known markets. Virginia Pearce, Director of the Utah Film Commission, will also join to share the many resources available through the Utah Film Commission.
This event is co-presented by the Utah Film Commission, which has helped thousands of projects film in the state, including many Sundance Institute supported projects. From the beginning, our locations, professional crew, and industry have left their mark on the unique stories that unfold in Utah. Visit our website to learn more about our state’s resources.
