NOVAC is a 501 c3 nonprofit whose mission is to foster the creation and appreciation of film and video for a public of diverse ages, income levels and backgrounds. NOVAC accomplishes this mission through education, career development, community outreach, independent productions, and special events. NOVAC’s Digital Media Institute provides training in emerging and established media tools for individuals and creative professionals. Our programs are made possible through a Recovery Workforce Training Program Grant, provided by the Louisiana Recovery Authority in collaboration with the State Office of Community Development’s Disaster Recovery Unit and the Louisiana Workforce Commission. Our programs are also supported by a grant from the Arts Council of New Orleans, the National Endowment for the Arts and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, a Community Arts Grant made possible by the City of New Orleans and by a Decentralized Arts grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council. Both the Community Arts Grant and the Decentralized Arts grant are administered through the Arts Council of New Orleans. Further support for our programs is generously provided by the RosaMary Foundation, the Keller Family Foundation, the Mary Freeman Wisdom Foundation, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Foundation, Louisiana Department of Economic Development's Office of Entertainment Industry Development and the City of New Orleans Office of Film and Video.
