Gracie Maeve Institute for the Creative Arts

The Gracie Maeve institute will be nestled in the terrain of Southern Utah. Designed for those who want to be filmmakers but were not given the opportunity due to circumstance, as children, beyond their control.

The institute is dedicated, but not exclusive, to adults who came from homes of neglect, abandonment, abuse or the foster care system. The institute also invites those who have served in the Military, or who are children of those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. In addition, the institute also invites those who are from Native American descent to participate in our program.

Please contact The Gracie Maeve Institute for more information and how you can be a part of this exciting place that will continue to give for many generations to come. We need the support of the artistic community to help others learn the craft of storytelling.

We thank our partner and sponsor Fund Indies, the crowdfunding source for filmmakers and musicians. FundIndies,org is an integral part of our future success. If you are a filmmaker and need funding please visit

Our Vision

Our vision is for a world where individuals are free to express their true creative selves. We hope to give generations the knowledge, power and experience to work behind the camera and share the world that is inside them.


Our Hope

Our hope is that you will join us in facilitating opportunities for aspiring filmmakers who have not had the opportunity to learn the craft. Some of the most fascinating people are those that have been in the shadows. Those whose stories we’ve yet to hear.


Our Mission

Our mission is to serve our communities and families by remembering those who have been less fortunate. We aim to surround ourselves with some of the best filmmakers in the industry and invite them to share their talents with a new generation of filmmakers.
