NIFP was created and received a 501(c)3 status in 1991 as an educational and fiscal support group for Nebraska filmmakers. Since then we continue to provide educational opportunities to our members through guest speakers during our semi-monthly meetings and special seminars that address subjects from screen writing to entertainment law.

Through our 501(c)3 status we are able to act as a fiscal sponsor to member filmmakers. This means we can act as an umbrella for those seeking funding though other organizations that require non-profit status and private individuals that wish to make a donation towards a specific project.
