This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Utah Film Center believes that “Good Film Makes Better Humans” and utilizes the power of film to educate, inspire, and engage Utahns. Executive Director Mariah Mellus joins us with more.


For over twenty years, Utah Film Center has supported the community by connecting people, stories, and ideas through film exhibitions, media arts education, and artist support. We believe utilizing film encourages spaces for learning and enhances an organization’s work and culture — welcoming people to feel creatively inspired.

We know businesses understand that diversity and inclusion are a driver for success. Employees are more creative and innovative, customers feel better understood, and the community benefits greatly. Utah Film Center is a resource for companies curious about creating opportunities for better engagement through film curation.

Additionally, Utah Film Center is gearing up our international film and media arts festival for kids. The Tumbleweeds Film Festival teaches kids how to deconstruct the media they consume and engage in making meaningful media projects of their own. Please reach out to us if you would like to learn more about our business curation for hire or children’s festival in April.


Through Utah Film Center programming, they work to connect people and strengthen communities; champion authentic and diverse representation; invest in the film ecosystem and so much more.
