DELTA KAPPA ALPHA
PROFESSIONAL CINEMATIC SOCIETY
LAMBDA λ CHAPTER
What is DKA?
DKA is a national, gender-inclusive, professional cinematic society for cinematic arts students. Members are connected to the top cinema students from top cinema schools. Every semester, members receive grants to produce short films, documentaries, music videos, and more.Notable alumni include Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Alfred Hitchcock, Julie Andrews, and many more.
Why should I join DKA?
As a DeKA, you get opportunities to not only grow professionally as a filmmaker but also to socialize, collaborate, and really get to know other fellow talented filmmakers in the organization, creating strong ties of friendship and support between all of you for the rest of your life, both career-wise and personally. Even after graduation, you can still be involved in the organization in many different ways and remain connected to DKA. Once a DeKA, always a DeKA.
How Much of a Time Commitment is DKA?
It all depends on how much you want to be involved in the organization and spend time with fellow DeKAs. Your first semester in the organization can be especially packed!
How is DKA different from a fraternity?
The Lambda Chapter of DKA at The University of Texas at Austin rebranded as a society to distance itself from the bad parts of fraternity culture that are widespread in the United States, especially hazing. This organization has a zero hazing policy.
How Do I Rush DKA?
Keep up with our social media in the start of the Fall and Spring semesters! We're always tabling and accepting applications around that time of the school year!
Stay tuned for our next rush season in the the start of Fall of 2023!
