Showcasing All of Utah

The Rural Utah Film Coalition (RUFC) is a coalition of county and municipal officers, economic development directors, tourism professionals, and other representatives of rural Utah, united around a shared conviction that film and television production is an important and desirable economic driver that creates meaningful economic activity in our communities. We strongly support policies that build a strong, robust, and enduring film and television industry in the state of Utah.
