Put Movies on Our Screens

NOT FAKE NEWS

“Art and culture might seem like a luxury at this dark moment…But when a people see their humanity denied, art is a defense of that humanity.”
– Hector Tobar “We Need Protests. And Paintings” (The New York Times, January 27, 2018)

So much of what we know to be real is being called fake, and so much of what we know is fake is being talked about as though it’s real. Movies aren’t real. But when the Lumière Brothers exhibited their first moving images of a locomotive – audiences fled for their lives.

For nearly 50 years Film Forum has brought you movies that grapple with real issues: gender discrimination, political upheavals, racial injustice, environmental concerns, and much else.

Informed citizens need to parse the real from the fake. We hope the films we present help you do just that.

Your donation will help us show you more great movies for years to come.
