Few places in the United States contain more diversity of scenery and natural beauty than the state of Utah. That, combined with generous incentives offered by the state, have made Utah a popular place to shoot film and television productions. Thanks in part to organizations like Robert Redford's Sundance, Utah has also become a hot spot for independent filmmakers, as well.

Among the numerous noteworthy films shot on location in Utah are Footloose, Independence Day, The Sandlot, Mission Impossible II, Thelma & Louise, Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade, and many others. Not surprisingly, Utah's western beauty has made it a particularly popular location for westerns, such as Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, Once Upon A Time In the West, and the upcoming reboot of The Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp.
