Support International Independent Cinema and Make A Gift Today.
For more than 50 years, the Film Society has brought you film that means more, creating unforgettable experiences through the power of film – year-round and during the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Film Society is powered by the generous support of our members and donors. We do it for you, and we can’t do it without you!
Your contribution plays a key role in advancing the exhibition of international independent cinema, and allows us to continue our work supporting the local arts community, Minnesota filmmakers, and film as an international art form.
Donations are fully tax-deductible. Thank you!

Planned Giving Via Estate Plan or Retirement Account:
The easiest form of planned giving is through a bequest or estate plan. Below is the language you may give to your attorney or financial planner.
• Residuary bequest is stated as a percentage (e.g. "_____% of my estate.")
• Specific bequest is stated as a fixed dollar amount (e.g. "The sum of $________.")
It is often simpler to express your bequests as a percentage of your estate; in the event your estate changes in value, you may not have to update your will as often as your gifts will remain proportional to your estate.
We suggest the following language for a bequest gift to the MSP Film Society:
"I give to MSP Film Society, EIN 41-1802905, a Minneapolis, Minnesota nonprofit organization that is recognized tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code [a ____________ percent of my residuary estate] or [the sum of $_____] to be used for [its general purposes] or [endowment]."
Please discuss your wishes with your attorney and/or financial planner. If you choose to notify the MSP Film Society of your estate plans, please call Judy Hawkinson, Development Director, at 612-331-7563 or email her at Judy@mspfilm.org.
