Your donation supports our mission to champion creative, independent storytelling.

At Film Independent, we champion bold, original storytellers through our filmmaker labs, robust international initiatives and extensive education programs, while building audiences for independent work through Film Independent Presents screenings and the Film Independent Spirit Awards. We are committed to supporting independent and unique voices, particularly those who still do not have equal access: BIPOC, women, LGBTQ+ and filmmakers with disabilities.

By making a donation to Film Independent, you have the power to make a lasting impact. Any amount is meaningful (and tax-deductible!) and directly results in our ability to sustain our year-round programming and support a community of artists who are leading the way to a more equitable future. Supporting independent voices takes allies – thank you for being one of them!

Film Independent welcomes donations by credit card, wire, check, stocks/securities and cryptocurrency.
