Please help Film Forum continue to present the best in independent cinema and classic films by donating to our Annual Appeal and/or small is beautiful campaign today.

small is beautiful

Film Forum was founded in 1970. In these 45 years, the city has lost dozens of movie-houses. With your help, we’re still here. Today we’re celebrating 25 years on West Houston Street.

With small is beautiful, your gift of as little as $25$50, or $100 can make a big impact. Since 2008 when we unveiled this campaign, 1,300 people have contributed over $100,000.

Donate Now to small is beautiful.
