ABOUT THE CFAA
Out of the ashes of the original Sacramento Film Group, the Capital Film Arts Alliance was founded in 2004 by Laurie Pederson, Brian Darling and Jason Bortz, to provide a dedicated place for local filmmakers and content creators to meet, network, learn, share work and develop their professional resources and connections.
In 2009 the CFAA was awarded a 501(c)3 non-profit status, and has become a vibrant organization with an audience of over 3,000 unique individuals who make up much of the visual and media production industry in the Sac-Sierra region today. Run by an all-volunteer board of directors, the organization functions extremely well on a minimal budget that is provided by member fees and sponsorships. As fellow filmmakers and artists, we are dedicated to the creative growth of the region's independent film industry and its people.
Our mission is to create a network of creative professionals, and to provide a forum for communication, activities, education and information in order to grow the local film arts community and develop the professional industry in our region. Working together with our creative members, city and state government, local business and other community leaders, we have become a trusted film resource, respected arts partner and the area's largest association of active filmmakers, writers, actors and all related talent.
The CFAA is made up of local, independent filmmakers, writers, production & post crew and artistic talent; as well as the retail and support businesses and services that supply and service this local industry. All levels of skill and experience are welcome. Whether you are an aspiring talent or a seasoned professional, there is an opportunity for you to contribute, learn, and benefit from networking and connecting with this creative association.
Attend CFAA meetings and workshops to grow skills, meet new friends, gain contacts, resources and partners, and learn about what's happening in your film community! We hope to see what YOU are creating soon!
