With tools and resources for a range of abilities and ages, we help artists and communities tell the stories that need to be told.
Independent Filmmaker Project Minnesota: Telling Stories Through Pictures Since 1987
Independent filmmakers enrich the universal language, seed the global culture with new ideas, kindle awareness and foster activism. IFP Minnesota helps them create stories and amplify their voice.
In the coming year our budget is stretched to meet increased demand for our work with young people, both in high schools and here at IFP headquarters after the school day ends.
It is also financially challenging to maintain sharp focus on professional programs for our emerging and advanced media artists--as we know we must.
Your donation–no matter the size–will have a significant impact. We truly appreciate you and your support of IFP MN.
Mission and Programs
IFP Minnesota exists to provide accessible and affordable programs for media artists and audiences. For 25 years we have been constant and true to our mission: to advance a vibrant and diverse community of independent film and media artists.
Through our workshops, conferences, seminars, mentorships and grants, IFP MN provides the resources media artists need to master the art, technology and business of independent media.
We’re proud of our track record of providing programs and services for the media arts community, and excited about continuing our work in the years to come. Ongoing priorities for the future include partnerships with public schools and our essential programs for media makers of all levels.
As IFP steps into the next stage of our life cycle, we are confident that we will continue to serve all ages and skill levels of the media artist community in a meaningful way—with your help.
