- Film Festival
The Philadelphia Film Society is thrilled to have recently received a grant from the Philadelphia Cultural Fund (the Fund) to go towards our general operating expenses. We deeply appreciate the generosity of the Fund and the City of Philadelphia and look forward to working with them this year to enrich the film community within Philadelphia.
Established by Philadelphia’s Mayor and City Council in 1991, the Philadelphia Cultural Fund is a non-profit corporation established to support and enhance the cultural life and vitality of the City of Philadelphia and its residents. By making grants from the City’s budget allocation to the Fund for operating support of Philly’s arts and cultural organizations, the Fund promotes arts and culture as engines of social, educational and economic development in the Philadelphia region.
Support from the Fund is a critical resource for PFS, and many other organizations in Philadelphia. General operating funding is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain and maintain in the current economic climate. As such, the continued support of the city of Philadelphia is a crucial source of funding that helps to ensure that the staff at PFS are able to produce and evaluate innovative film programming in a variety of settings throughout the city in 2012.
As grant recipients, we encourage our friends to contact the Mayor and the appropriate City Council members to express your support for the city's continued support of the Philadelphia Cultural Fund. Philadelphia's arts and culture organizations thrive with dependable, sustainable funding at the city, state, and federal level.
Thank you, Philadelphia Cultural Fund!
