Purpose: The University Filmmakers Alliance is a registered student organization at the University of Texas Austin. The organization is open to all UT students and encourages them to create films with fellow students. UFA was founded in 1997 when several Radio/Television/Film students felt they were not given enough experience by the department. Over the years, many students aspiring in film have met and created movies together, received internships or jobs, and have become acquinted with industry professionals.

Membership: Open to all UT students. Dues contribute to our annual filmmaker conference. Previous attendees include Kurt Wimmer (dir., Equilibrium), Michael Tronick (editor, Mr. and Mrs. Smith), Ron Bozeman Cprod., Silence of the Lambs) and Wes Craven.

Functions: Weekly meetings with local film community guests, group filmmaking challenges, JumpCut Film Festival, and a filmmaker conference every April.
