The Maine Film Association’s mission is to advance the art, craft, and business of filmmaking in Maine. Our vision is to make Maine a great place to live and work as a filmmaker. 

Formerly the Maine Film & Video Association, we remain true to our roots as a trade association made up of production companies, film and video professionals, TV stations, students, actors, musicians, writers, crew members, and others interested in working together to create better business opportunities and educational and networking opportunities for the people working in the film industry in Maine.

In early summer 2017, MFA underwent a strategic planning process to establish a plan and strategies to better serve our members and the film industry in Maine. From this endeavor, MFA emerged with a new name– the Maine Film Association–and 5 three-year goals:

Goal 1: Provide professional development and skill-building opportunities for Maine filmmakers.
Goal 2: Foster connections across the filmmaking community in Maine.
Goal 3: Promote the Maine film industry and attract more film production to the state.
Goal 4: Expand membership in the MFA to better showcase film professionals in Maine.
Goal 5: Increase organizational capacity for sustainable success.

If you work in the film industry in Maine, we encourage you to join as a member! Your membership will help support our efforts to better connect film professionals in the state, provide engaging and interesting professional development and networking opportunities, and promote the film industry in Maine. Your membership entitles you to free or reduced admission to MFA events and workshops, special offers from vendors and our business members, and opportunities to showcase your work through MFA channels.
