We are Independent Film Alliance Chicago!

Launched a mere 2 months before the global pandemic, together, we harnessed the power of what makes our film community strong: diversity, resilience, tenacity, flexibility, and, of course, creativity.

With your help, we hosted 18 successful events, confabs and community conversations while planting the seeds for an even BIGGER 2021: initiatives that will include a film fund, member portal, redesigned co-working space, and expanded programs to benefit YOU.

And now, TOGETHER, we will continue to fuel our mission to provide the community and resources needed to build a diverse and sustainable industry of independent content creators, right here in Chicago.

We are throwing a party that won’t be complete without YOU. So come on out, from the comfort of your own sofa and show your love for the community!

Your participation will ensure we can continue to grow our support and services. We can't wait to see you, and are incredibly grateful for your continued support of this organization and one another. 

Sincerely,

Angie, Betsy, Natalia & Ese
The IFA Chicago Team
