This is your opportunity to address university film and video teachers from around the country. Bart Weiss, from member organization Dallas VideoFest, has arranged for festival programmers and organizers to meet and hold a panel in front of the UFVA (University Film and Video Association) during their annual conference.

After an opening discussion about the FFA and our role in the industry, each festival will be able to address the audience about their events, what they are looking for, and suggest ways to better work with film and video schools. After the session, there will be ample time to talk informally with one another, and build new relationships.

For more information or to be included on the panel, contact Bart at bart@videofest.org


For the second year in a row, FFA has partnered with Spotlight Cinema Networks to bring our member festivals the Spotlight Support Program –  a great way for Film Festival Alliance (FFA) members to generate self-earned revenue by leveraging unused/underused screen time during their events.

“Spotlight Cinema Networks matched us up with a high-profile company and even found  a second choice when the first sponsor was problematic for our venue due to circumstances out of our control.  We loved having a national company associated with our brand and I think it helped festival goers see us in a new light, said Bears Fonte, Founder/Director of Programming of the Other Worlds Austin Sci Fi Film Festival.

Our friends at Art House Convergence are giving away a FREE REGISTRATION for the AHC Regional Seminar in Philadelphia to one lucky Film Festival Alliance Member.

The 3-day seminar includes networking, a Festival Operations Panel presented by the Philadelphia Film Society, a Fundraising Panel, a special event with the inventor of the Steadicam, a group photo on the “Rocky Steps” & much more.

To enter the giveaway, just fill out our quick FFA Q&A (please complete the quick survey even if you can’t make it – your feedback is deeply valuable!)  We’ll announce the selected entrant on Wednesday, Thursday May 18th to allow plenty of time for travel arrangements.
