Cinema St. Louis is deeply grateful for the support we receive from the St. Louis community and beyond. Countless volunteers, filmmakers, donors, and sponsors make our mission of presenting independent films possible. 

We believe that every member of our community, regardless of their ability to pay, should have year-round access to innovative, educational, and inspirational storytelling through film.

Your contributions enable Cinema St. Louis to:

  • Shine a light on local, national, and global filmmakers
  • Illuminate inspirational stories of others' cultures and perspectives
  • Provide intimate experiences through film screenings, coupled with live entertainment, panels, and discussions with filmmakers and special guests
  • Engage the next generation through educational screenings and hands-on filmmaking camps to learn more about one of the most powerful forms of art: film

Join us in discovering, cultivating, and amplifying the diverse voices of filmmakers who share their stories through our festivals while inspiring future generations of filmmakers.
