Established March 16, 1936, Delta Kappa Alpha is a National, Gender Inclusive, Professional Cinema Fraternity for cinematic arts students of character. As a National organization with over 75 years of history and alumni, our members are connected to the top cinema students from top cinema schools. In 2017, the Lambda Chapter made the decision to rebrand as a professional cinematic society. Not exclusive to film studies majors, DKA welcomes men and women, undergraduates and graduates, who are dedicated to fostering lifelong character, collaborative and creative storytelling, ethical and productive business practices, philanthropic action, and fraternal bonds by and between students of the cinematic arts.
Although not all of us are film students, we all have a deep respect and admiration for the Cinematic Arts. Every Spring and Fall semester, our members receive grants to produce short films, documentaries, music videos, and any other type of cinematic content that we are itching to make.

It's a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.

I am not an artist. I am a craftsman.
Every time I go to a movie, it's magic, no matter what the movie's about.
