Make A Year-End Contribution to FilmNorth

November 20th, 2020

Help us keep classes and screenings online, employ teaching artists at a time when artists are struggling for employment, and keep youth engaged in enriching media arts education.

The COVID-19 has been exceptionally difficult for nonprofit arts organizations, including FilmNorth. We are grateful for our incredible community who has supported us as we successfully moved film classes, youth programs, and CinemaLounge screenings online and as we created the Minnesota Film Community Emergency Relief Fund, providing $500 grants to filmmakers and film crew in need. 

In the final two months of this tumultuous year, FilmNorth has set a fundraising goal of $30,000 to allow us to continue to support independent filmmakers who call Minnesota home. We invite you to join us in celebrating the amazing talent of the filmmakers who share our stories with the world. You can make a donation to FilmNorth here. Any amount makes a difference! Thank you!
