What is Utah Film Center’s Community Spotlight program? Utah Film Center is sharing its online streaming platform to allow community groups to elevate their mission and message through film. We think of it as a virtual venue rental where nonprofits can “gather” to watch a film and dive deep into meaningful discussions. We are glad to offer a creative way to help nonprofits build and rally their community no matter where people are. Learn more by visiting: utahfilmcenter.org/community-spotlight.
