Membership

Note to our current Film Forum members: The ongoing COVID-19 crisis is a developing situation. In the interest of the safety of our patrons and staff, we are currently closed. 

We want to assure you that you will not lose any time on your membership. When we reopen, your membership expiration date will be extended to reflect the amount of time of this closure. For more information, visit our COVID-19 Temporary Closure FAQ page.

If during this time you'd like to renew your membership, your membership will be extended 1 year, plus the amount of time of this closure. If you have any questions, or need assistance, please email us at membership@filmforum.org.

  Employer Matching Gifts

   A great way to increase your support for Film Forum and
   upgrade your membership level


   Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match
   their employees’ charitable contributions – sometimes double or
   even triple the original gift size. Film Forum memberships count
   as charitable gifts. Your company’s match may even increase your
   member benefits.

   Three easy steps will maximize your contribution:
   1. Please inquire with your employer if your company matches
      donations.
   2. Obtain a Matching Gift form from your human resources
       department.
   3. Send the completed form, along with your gift, to:
       Film Forum, Inc.
      Attn: Matching Gifts
      209 West Houston St
      New York, NY 10014

 

For more information or assistance, email our membership department or call 212-627-2035, Monday through Friday, 10 AM to 5 PM.
