About UWiFT

Utah Women in Film and Television (UWiFT) is a non-profit organization that supports the advancement of women in all phases of filmmaking by providing networking opportunities and education.

The organization began as Utah Women in Film in 2010, when a group of Utah women first joined forces to create opportunities where women in the film industry could come together to share experiences and ideas.

Through the many ups and downs the organization has grown and expanded.  In 2019, a new Board of Directors are developing new programming and initiatives.

UWiFT is proud to share support with the following organizations.


Our goal is to help women by providing the tools they need to be proficient in whatever job they desire in film and television.
