Help Re-light Our Screens


Casablanca poster   

“Our problems don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world.”
– Humphrey Bogart to Ingrid Bergman

The world is undergoing a profound crisis and in that context our nonprofit cinema may be a “hill of beans” – but one we believe you will agree is worth sustaining.


Give to Film Forum’s 2020 Spring Appeal

We intend to remain a vital part of your intellectual and emotional lives. After 50 years we have confidence in this reality. But we need your help. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.

We will re-open when it is safe to do so and we will have wonderful films — both old and new — to show you. We will again be together alone, expectant and captivated, in the dark.

Be well. Be safe. Thank you.

Support independent film and classic cinema
that explore the complicated world we live in today.

Please make a 100% tax-deductible gift to our
