SUPPORT THE CINEMATIC ARTS WITH YOUR YEAR-END DONATIONS
Dear Friends of the MSP Film Society,
This year has been a very big year for the Film Society – not only was it our 60th Anniversary as Minnesota’s leading nonprofit exhibitor of international independent film, but it also marked the launch of our exciting new chapter at The Main Cinema!
As we move into 2023 and prepare for Phase 2 of upgrades at The Main, we welcome your year-end donations to our organization to help us uphold our legacy of uniting, informing and transforming through the power of great cinema. Your support will go directly to the practical upgrades, including new speakers and microphones, and upgrading the internet for Zoom capabilities in the screening rooms, so we can bring even more filmmakers together with our audiences. We also have big plans in the works for giving our marquee the upgrade it deserves.
No donation is too big or too small, as they say, and we are grateful for any support. But if you are able to give $60 in honor of our 60th Anniversary we invite you join us for either of the following classic film pairings – chosen because they were favorites of the Film Society’s founder Al Milgrom– as a Thank You for helping us continue this mission for the next 60 years in a space that is welcoming and worthy of the films on our big screens. Or donate $100+ and join us for all four films!
