Artist Vendor Information
9th Annual Wasatch Mountain Film Festival is open to artists and creators with who draw inspiration from the outdoors.

Original Work Regulation:
All creations must be original. Upon submission of images, the artist guarantees the accuracy of the description of artwork presented and the authenticity of the artwork as original and created by their own hands.

Exhibitor Space Info:
Wasatch Mountain Film Festival exhibitors will be placed outdoors in front of Industry SLC. We will be closing down the street for the art market, outoor brand activations and beer garden.
10’x10’ Space: 10’x10’ of designated space to set up a “shop” in the venue. No walls, tables or chairs provided. Exhibitors who have a large display and inventory to fill the space should apply for a 10’x10′ space. Exhibitor must bring a back wall that is no more than 7′ high by 10′ wide.
Shared 10’x10’ Space for Two Exhibitors: Includes a designated space of 10’x10′ to set up a small “shop” shared by two businesses that would like to exhibit together. Half of the cost will be invoiced to each coordinating business.
Space Sharing Policy:
Applicants in the Artist Section of the beer garden and vendor village may opt to share 10’x10′ of floor space with one other individual exhibitor in this category (the “Shared 10’x10’ Space for Two Exhibitors” booth option). This will guarantee that the two artisans are placed in the same 10’x10′ area. Both exhibitors interested in sharing 10’x10′ of designated floor space must apply separately and both artisans must be accepted in order to share a space at the Wasatch Mountain Film Festival. On the application, both artisans must state with whom they would like to share. —this option is available only for 10’x10′ spaces. Only two exhibitors are allowed to share one 10’x10′ space.
Due to the limited availability of electricity at the venue, it is difficult to accommodate a high volume of power users. WMFF is currently investigating and evaluating power availability but at this time options and pricing have not been finalized.
Sales & Tax Information:
The Wasatch Mountain Film Festival provides vendor mailing addresses to the Utah State Tax Commission, so exhibitors can expect to receive their sales tax form via snail mail within 2 weeks after the event. For questions (or to request a replacement Special Event Tax Form should it not arrive), please contact the USTC at 801-297-6303 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
