Your tax-deductible donation will support AFI’s mission to empower storytellers and inspire audiences.

For more than 50 years, the American Film Institute has championed the moving image as an art form. Your support of AFI today will empower storytellers and inspire audiences. Because of movie-lovers like you, gifted young filmmakers receive hands-on training through our innovative education programs and artists and audiences come together to experience the best in cinema at AFI festivals throughout the year.

Your support of AFI will help build a more inclusive community for future generations of filmmakers and drive culture forward.
