Supporting independent voices takes allies – thank you for being one of them.

This year at Film Independent, we’re celebrating #AD30 – the 30th anniversary of our Artist Development programs. These programs are at the very heart of our efforts, providing direct artist support while fostering a culture of inclusion through Labs, intensives, international residencies, grants and awards. Your donation will help to make the next 30 years (and beyond!) possible. Learn more about the impact of your gift.

Donate Cryptocurrency

Donating crypto is one of the most tax efficient ways to support Film Independent. The more you give, the more you can deduct on your tax return, saving as much as 30% by donating crypto directly, instead of incurring a capital gains tax by first selling the crypto and then making a donation.

By providing an email address, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.
