Utah Film Commission

You may or may not have been to Utah, but chances are you’ve seen Utah on the big screen, television, and print magazines all over the world. More than 900 films and TV movies have been filmed in the Beehive State. Hollywood first discovered Utah in the 1920s with the film “The Vanishing American.” In the years that followed, Moab and Monument Valley became icons of the west with films like “Stagecoach” and “The Searchers.” Since then, Utah has been the backdrop for hundreds of films, such as “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “Thelma & Louise,” “High School Musical,” “127 Hours,” and “Transformers: Age of Extinction”


Utah currently offers a film incentive of 20 – 25 percent tax credit on approved productions. Our knowledgeable staff can assist your production with all of your filming needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from initial scouts and pre-production to principal photography and post-production. We provide professional and timely consulting to your production questions, and can assist you with the inevitable last-minute changes with your production needs.
