FILMMAKERS ALLIANCE is a community of film artists dedicated to the advancement of true independent film through community action. FA is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. FA provides a unique mutual support system through which members share time, energy, expertise, resources and, most importantly, creative support for one another's film projects from concept through distribution. We work together to restore humanity, authenticity, diversity, originality, intelligence, relevance, personal vision and emotional resonance to American Cinema.

Started in 1993 as a collective answer to the practical needs of independent filmmakers, FA has evolved into a  multi-layered support organization with an emphasis on aesthetic empowerment. Hundreds of films have been produced  through FA and have screened in dozens of major festivals  throughout the world.

Filmmakers Alliance is revamping its online membership.

The NEW Filmmakers Alliance website is launching in June 2014, but we are offering an April-only membership offer of $10 PER YEAR. Yes, per year! We are offering this to current and former FA members and others who have been part of the FA family. Sign on anytime between now and midnight Monday April 30th for just $10 for membership lasting until May 31st, 2015.


Besides the usual info, community and resource benefits on the Filmmakers Alliance site that Film Stuff called "one of the ten best filmmaking websites", FA membership will now include numerous free benefits and discounts from our partners. We will also be brokering new discounts for FA members throughout the year to such things as festivals, seminars, workshops, rental houses, insurance packages and more.

Also, you'll be automatically enrolled in FA's "Frequent FilmmakIng Program" - earning points for ANY online activity (posts, responses, purchases, etc.) which you can then redeem for tons of FREE filmmaking stuff.

As always, you'll be able to connect with other filmmakers to get the information, resources and support you've always needed, but you'll also get an immense package of benefits that will make your filmmaking life cheaper and easier - freeing you to be the filmmaker you were born to be. For just $10 per year.
