Welcome to The Iowa Motion Picture Association

We're Glad You're Here! The IMPA's Mission

The Iowa Motion Picture Association is a nonprofit, 501 (c) 3, organization that encourages and supports Iowa media production through education, networking and the annual IMPA Awards.

About The Iowa Motion Picture Association

Founded in 1992, we are an educational and networking association to promote the film and media production skills of our members, provide networking and professional development opportunities, mentor amateur and professional filmmakers, and work with partner organizations to promote filmmaking in Iowa.


The IMPA works directly with the media producers 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.
