The Philadelphia Independent Film and Video Association (PIFVA) is a membership organization started by filmmakers whose mission is to connect, support, sustain and showcase Philadelphia regions’ independent media arts community. It was formed in 1979 by independent filmmakers to provide services to media makers working in all genres, styles and at all levels of experience. PIFVA evolved into an essential and dynamic resource for local media makers, encouraging independent, non-commercial, artistically provocative, diverse, and community-based production of work.
