What we're about

We're a statewide Alaska filmmaking group based in Anchorage. If you like to make films, are a screen writer (or want to become one), are an actor (or wanna learn), know how to sing or dance, are a voice over or Foley artist, want to compose a musical score, know audio/sound, are a grip or gaffer, want to make some ART, or have a creative mind filled with imagination...join us! Are you a production company, casting director, studio, or are involved in any other aspect of filmmaking or showing films? If so, then we want you... AND...lets ALL make movie magic! This Meetup group is for folks who are into making Indie films/documentaries/television shows/podcasts or any other form of visual entertainment. This is more than just a networking group - we're a working group! We help each other make our film dreams come true! We make movies as a group, we help each other get our movies completed, and we make movies others ask us to.

We made five short films in the last two years, "The Detective", "Attack of the Killer King Salmon", "The Lil' Scrapers", "The Writer's Club", and the "Flagon Dance." "Attack of the Killer King Salmon" and "The Lil' Scrapers" were chosen as "Official Selections" for the Anchorage International Film Festival in December 2017. It was AWESOME to be a part of this festival! "Killer King Salmon" was also chosen as an "Official Selection" in the Talkeetna Adventure Film Festival in January 2018. We would love to have all our films entered into film festivals! We LOVE to make film FUN and movie mischief!
