The Milwaukee Filmmaker Alliance (MFA) is a membership-based organization that seeks to drive economic growth in the region through advocacy, professional development (seminars, workshops, panels), and financial support of and for Milwaukee filmmakers and media professionals of all experience levels. This vibrant group meets several times a month for screenings, networking opportunities, discussions, and other film-adjacent events to help strengthen the local network of creative professionals and forge connections with the larger Milwaukee creative community.

One of MFA's very first directives was to commission an economic study of the local film industry. The results were announced at the MFA launch party on Novemebr 9, 2018. Check out the full report or download a summary of the results.

MFA Membership Levels

At MFA, we want filmmakers of all experience levels—from bright-eyed film students to seasoned professional videographers—to have all the same opportunities to learn, grow, create, and elevate their art. Thus, our program has the same set of benefits for everyone, but we encourage community members to contribute at whatever level they can. This makes it possible for us to transform your donations into opportunities, events, and financial support for both more- and less-experienced filmmakers. It's classless social democracy at its finest!
