The Student and Filmmaker Alliance (SAFA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging students to become more active with their creative community, as well as promoting research, service, and technology, mainly through film and video. As educators and filmmakers, the founders of SAFA hope to inspire students from elementary school through college level, to incorporate academics with film to either improve their academic/creative skills, explore topics of interest, or to better their community. As an integral aspect to all levels and areas of education, SAFA will advocate keeping education creative and inspirational through mobilizing, supporting, motivating, assisting, and giving a voice to students and the community. The ultimate goal of SAFA is to provide both informational material and financial aid to students.
Although we are based in Mobile, Alabama, we hope to reach out to other communities to create their own chapters of SAFA.
If you are interested in becoming a new chapter of SAFA, please contact us.
