About The Iowa Motion Picture Association

Our history and plans for the future are the building blocks of our success and inspriation.

Founded in 1992, we are an educational and mentoring association existing to promote the talents and skills of our membership and other Filmmakers (both Iowans producing films in Iowa and those who have left to pursue filmmaking elsewhere as well as folks from other parts of the country who produce films about or in Iowa), foster good will between our members, and provide support to students interested in film--be it on an amateur or professional level.

The IMPA works directly with the Iowa Film Office to provide services to our members.Through these cooperative efforts, the IMPA provides its members information on opportunities, events and issues affecting the production industry, helps to create the best conditions for production in Iowa, and ensure the prosperity of the industry.

The Iowa Motion Picture Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. IMPA is funded primarily by members' dues and, in part, by grants from Produce Iowa.
