The Northern Film Alliance (NFA) 501©3  effective date of exemption was May, 2016. It was formed as partnership of film festivals in the northern region of the United States (The Duluth Superior Film Festival, The EDU Film Festival, and The Minn WebFest) with the mission to support the goals of its member festivals while serving as conduit for film exhibition, education, and production.  NFA’s goal is to enhance the film festival experience for filmmakers and audiences; to engage with under-served and rural communities through high quality cinema exhibition; and to support a network of regional and next generation filmmakers through diverse screening options and enriching educational opportunities.

NFA’s formation was a direct result of the desire to move existing film festivals past Fiscal Sponsorship status and into their own Non-Profit organization. The Duluth Superior Film Festival (DSFF) has been in operation since 2010, and The EDU Film Festival (EDU) since 2008. Minn WebFest was developed from its inception as an NFA program in 2017. Although the NFA is a somewhat new Non-Profit, its programming has been strong for more than a decade.
