Maine Film Center

Donatebutton2014 Annual Appeal

Season’s greetings! While 2014 is rapidly drawing to a close, it is not too late to make a tax-deductible contribution to the Maine Film Center in support of our mission to enrich, educate and entertain the community through film and art.

We have been hard at work developing and securing funding for exciting new programs that will expand the reach and diversity of our film and education offerings both in the Waterville area and beyond, including:

  • Digital Filmmaking Workshop for Teens – a four-day workshop to be presented in the spring of 2015 in partnership with the Mid-Maine Technical Center with support from the Oak Grove School Foundation;
  • Science on Screen – a series of classic, cult, and documentary film screenings with lively presentations by notable science and technology experts, made possible by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Coolidge Corner Theatre Foundation; and
  • World Filmmakers Forum at the 18th Annual Maine International Film Festival (July 10-19, 2015) – a program that will bring filmmakers from around the world to the festival to present their work and participate in panel discussions and workshops, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

While we are thrilled with the grant support that we have received to expand our programming, we continue to rely on the community to help cover the operational costs of running a year-round art house cinema and world class film festival. With the support of our community behind us, we will continue to offer even more exciting, diverse, year-round film programming. Thank you for considering a gift to the Maine Film Center, and we hope to see you at the movies!
