When we tell people what we do for a living, they often say, "That sounds like a dream job. You mean you get to watch movies and meet directors and movie stars?" Yes, but that's not all we do.

We teach filmmaking in the schools and provide free programs for kids. We gather thousands of people across economic, social, and cultural divides. We bring them together to share a meal, listen to live music, and explore the world through film. Then we invite brilliant guests like Dolores Huerta, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and Noam Chomsky to discuss the issues of our time.

It is a dream job, but one we cannot do without your support. We need to raise $60,000 to support our free Cinema Circus and filmmaking workshops (including our filmmaking exchange program), $25,000 to cover lodging and travel for our world-renowned guests, and $15,000 to fund our summer internship program. Please give today.
