The association was founded in 1993, and now has more than 300 members from the media, advertising and communications industries. From the outset, members have also included private individuals interested in film, as well as teaching staff and graduates from the Film Academy. The Association of the Film Academy is recognised as a non-profit organisation for taxation purposes, and pursuant to its stance on the promotion of performance. It has not served any social support functions. Membership fees are directly contributed to students’ film productions. Because of this, particularly ambitious and artistic student projects can receive additional funding, which exceeds the standard budgeting of the Film Academy.
