Inspiration: A focus on the development of skills in students, new artists, and to offer opportunities, tools, techniques and educational opportunities to those who wish to become involved in filmmaking.
Dedication: Establishing and maintaining the organization in an on-going basis as a respected center for film enthusiasm, appreciation and education.
