GREETINGS CINEMATHEQUE FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS!
Thank you for participating in yet another fantastic and jam-packed Spring season. CROSSROADS 2016 was our most successful festival to date and Cinematheque’s post-fest season—with work by Yin-Ju Chen, Trinh T. Minh-ha (sold-out screenings!) and Dennis Cooper & Zac Farley—was equally exciting and rewarding. CROSSROADS 2017 will be upon us in no time. In the meantime, stay tuned for a full Fall season focusing on PERPETUAL MOTION, our large-scale series of expanded cinema performance. Details coming soon!
A FEW SPRING STATS WE’RE PROUD TO SHARE WITH YOU
22 programs presented or co-presented to date in 2016. 103 artists supported. 46 artists in person. Over 2,500 in total attendance.
SUPPORT MORE ARTIST-MADE CINEMA
For a limited time set up a recurring donation and get exclusive access to three great films presented in CROSSROADS 2016—Gina Basso’s Soliloquy, Kristin Reeves’ Body Contours, and Heather Trawick‘s Jenny & John—all presented in CROSSROADS 2016, Program 7, all films will be viewable online through June 30 to all supporters who commit to this recurring $5 minimum monthly donation. Sign up and we’ll send you the access details! We want to share this wonderful work with you, and much more like it, but we need your help.
TWO CUPS OF COFFEE CHALLENGE
We’d like to make our gift recurring, just like your donation.
Let’s make it a habit. If we can reach our goal of FIFTY donors at the mininum $5/month level by JUNE 30, Cinematheque will offer an online film each month to all Cinematheque recurring donors and members.
Not local? Monthly donations are a fantastic way to offer support when you can’t make it to our programs and want to catch a glimpse of what we’re showing in San Francisco, as well as bonus films availabe only online.
For the price of just two cups of coffee a month, your contribution is both affordable & sustaining. And you get movies!

Why support Cinematheque? Simply put, because there is no other organization like us in the Bay Area!
With our annual CROSSROADS festival plus an additional 30–40 year-round programs, original publications and a paper archive, we are resolutely dedicated to the increased visibility of artist-made, experimental cinema across the Bay Area and beyond. Amid the current climate of artist displacement, increased operational costs and limited experimental media arts funding, we have our work cut out for us, so we need your help.
Over Cinematheque’s 55 years, our passionate, resourceful and stalwart community has been what keeps us alive, and what keeps us going. Monthly donations ensure that Cinematheque receives regular, sustaining income so we can continue to provide you with more vibrant and engaging artist-made cinema.
Thank you, as always, for your support!
Steve, Christine and Cinematheque’s Board of Directors
