The Long Beach Film Festival - employing the art of cinema to support and enrich Long Beach arts and education organizations!
What separates the Long Beach Film Festival from other community film fests? Our film festival will directly impact over two dozen community arts, humanities, and educational organizations, as each film, program, and series will be co-presented by a different Long Beach-based non-profit organization. Each organization will introduce themselves at their specific screening or event, and the Cinematheque will then donate 50% of the tickets sold to that event to the host organization. The Long Beach Film Festival will be a three-day event that will mark a major accomplishment of our continued mission - to employ the art of cinema to support the Long Beach community.
In the effort of to raise funds for this great event, team LONG BEACH FILM FEST - dedicated film lovers, arts and community enthusiasts, and all-around wonderful people - is training to run the 2012 Long Beach Marathon! Whether they're running full marathons, halfs, or 10 K's, they're doing it to raise funds to make the Long Beach Film Festival a reality! And keep an eye out - many of them will be doing their runs dressed as their favorite costume characters. I hear Braveheart might be making an appearance...
Please donate whatever you can in sponsorship of the Long Beach Film Festival, and to support the permanence and longevity of a healthy and eclectic film presence in Long Beach. Your gift is tax-deductible, and will help the Long Beach Cinematheque provide a very fantastic gift to Long Beach in May of 2013.
