Film Festival Alliance to Receive $20,000 Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts

Film Festival Alliance has been approved for a $20,0000 Grants for Arts Projects award from the National Endowment for the Arts to support our efforts in our work in accessibility, advocacy, and community building. FFA is among 1,125 projects across America totaling more than $26.6 million that were selected during this second round of Grants for Arts Projects fiscal year 2022 funding.

“The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to support arts and cultural organizations throughout the nation with these grants, including Film Festival Alliance, providing opportunities for all of us to live artful lives,” said NEA Chair Maria Rosario Jackson, PhD.

“The arts contribute to our individual well-being, the well-being of our communities, and to our local economies. The arts are also crucial to helping us make sense of our circumstances from different perspectives as we emerge from the pandemic and plan for a shared new normal informed by our examined experience.”

“I am thrilled that Film Festival Alliance has been approved for a $20,000 Grants for Arts Project award from the National Endowment for the Arts,” said FFA Executive Director Barbara Twist. “We look forward to directing it towards our work in accessibility, advocacy, and community building as our festival membership continues to evolve and grow.”

Film Festival Alliance would also like to congratulate our members Ashland Independent Film Festival, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, Cleveland International Film Festival, Cucalorus, Chagrin Documentary Film Festival, Milwaukee Film, Montclair Film Festival, Nashville Film Festival, New Orleans Film Society, Sidewalk Film, and SIFF for their grant support from the NEA for their respective projects.
