The Philadlephia Film Society has been hit particularly hard by COVID-19 and is now facing a financial crisis.
To ensure that the Film Society can sustain operations through the end of the year, we have removed all controlable costs from our business model, negotiated 90-day deferrals from our vendors, and we are are working to put in place innovative, new programs. But it's not enough.
We need to raise $300,000 by July 19 to sustain operations through the end of the year. The good news? We're half-way there!
The Film Society’s Board of Directors has raised $150,000 toward this goal and has challenged the Film Society to raise an additional $150,000 from the community, thereby helping us to meet the challnge and get to our goal of $300,000. We need your help to meet the challenge!
Please consider making a financial contribution, or helping us spread the word to family and friends via the 'Share' button.
In doing so, you’ll be helping to ensure that Philadelphians of all ages, race, and economic background continue to have access to film that helps inspire them, lift them, and see themselves in one another, all while giving context to the world around them.
This is the mission of the Film Society and what we work toward 365 days a year.
With your support, this is what we will continue to do for years to come.
With your help we can meet the challenge by July 19 and get back to our mission of inspiring, educating, challenging and entertaining all Philadelphians through Film.
Thank you for considering support of the Film Society!
With great appreciation,
PS - Were hopeful that we will be back soon to engaging with our members and donors for more shared experiemces through film. One of those recent experiences was this past March in LA, when we took patrons on an exclusive Tour of Hollywood (See photo from a coxktail party on that trip, with Board Members and patrons Elton Brand, Jen Su, Betsy Filton, and Sara Cerato).
