Why Donate?

Your donation to Northwest Film Forum allows us to preserve film independence and diversity, invest in local filmmaking and champion artistic discovery. Every year we: 

  • bring the most provocative and fascinating new films and filmmakers to Seattle from around the world;
  • offer a quarterly slate of filmmaking classes and film history classes that let film lovers dig deeper into the art of film;
  • create programs for families and young people, including life-changing summer filmmaking camps and our winter Children's Film Festival Seattle (the largest and most respected family film festival on the West Coast);
  • commission new work, offer residencies for filmmakers and make cash awards directly to filmmakers;
  • ensure affordable filmmaking by offering low-cost film equipment rentals, easily accessible post-production facilities, and scholarships/assistance to those who need it.

Your donation plays an important role in the growing independent film scene in the Northwest, and in building a solid foundation for the Film Forum's year-round work. Your donation also allows us to demonstrate community support and engagement to other local and national funders who support us in turn.

Northwest Film Forum is Seattle's premiere film arts organization, screening over 200 independently made and classic films annually, offering a year-round schedule of filmmaking classes for all ages, and supporting filmmakers at all stages of their careers. Learn more about what we do >
