This is a very special year for the West Michigan Film Video Alliance our tenth year anniversary! We officially launched in January 2005 with the goal of promoting a thriving film and production community in West Michigan. Our aim then, which continues into the future, is to generate a new creative and economic force in West Michigan dedicated to the art and business of filmmaking and video production. WMFVA is incorporated as an IRS approved 501c3 non-profit.

Over the past ten years,

Weve sponsored over a hundred networking events, professional development seminars, film screenings, and socials to bring together members of the film and video production community in West Michigan.
Weve provided the only website in West Michigan devoted to information about the film and video production industry, providing a list of hundreds of talented production crew and related services
Weve organized economic summits that educated regional economic development officers and legislators about the film and production industry efforts that led to enactment of the Michigans Motion Picture Incentives program.
The Alliance launched the West Michigan Film Office as an independent organization charged with bringing new production work to our region.

These are all programs that set the pace for growth in the filmmaking industry here. Now we must keep ahead of our own curve. In 2015, we will introduce a new logo, new website, and new membership benefits aimed exclusively at filmmakers.

Watch for details as we head into January and our fabulous 10th Anniversary Celebration Membership Party!
