Your membership fees go to promoting, defending and assisting the film and video industry in the city, the state and the nation. In 2007, the DPA spearheaded the film incentive effort in Texas, and with the help of others got important film incentives passed through the state legislature. With the DPA’s assistance and the founding of the Texas Motion Picture Alliance, film incentive work will continue on all fronts making Texas film and video competitive to other state incentives. Also in 2007, the DPA played an important role in the first AFI Dallas Film Festival. These are just two of the efforts that the DPA has supported in the Defense, Promotion and Assistance of the film and video industry in Texas.
The DPA is continuing to expand to actively include professional producers from the interactive and animation industries making the DPA a strategic and seminal force for producers.
