What do you want from your Nebraska 501(c)3 film organization? What would you find valuable as a paid member? What do you want from the meetings? What topics would you like to discuss?

Your opinion matters. Do you have a short piece you’d like to share? We’ll make time for a couple each month.

Bring it on a USB drive or provide a link. Be prepared for feedback.

Beverages and snacks will be provided. Hope to see you there!

Why, When, and Where

NIFP meetings bring members together IRL to share their work, offer feedback, and ask questions about the process. We try

to share experiences from the production, writing or directing backgrounds of video, TV and film. We are a pretty honest and open, try to be a friendly group of filmmakers.

Where does NIFP meet?

We have experimented with multiple meeting sites and now have an office atTurbine Flats, 2124 Y St. Lincoln NE.

We meet there every Third Thursday at 6PM Unless Otherwise Noted!

HISTORY:

We previously met at the Mary Riepma Ross Theatre, but also enjoyed the State Theater downtown and met for years at the old TELEPRO location. If you have ideas for a meeting spaces that are friendly to indie film discussion and consumption of adult beverages, let us know! That includes Lincoln/Omaha/Nebraska!
