LOVE FILM? DONATE TODAY!
Support Vancouver's longest-running non-profit film organization by making a charitable donation to The Cinematheque.
The Cinematheque, incorporated in 1972, is a cultural and educational institution that excites and educates our community about the art, impact, and legacy of cinema and screen-based media.
We envision a society enriched by the understanding and appreciation of cinema as an art form and enlightened by thoughtful education about the impact of moving-image media in our lives.
The Cinematheque is a leading cultural destination for film and screen-based media, with state-of-the-art facilities, world-class programs, and a community of staff, volunteers, and other stakeholders committed to excellence. We value cinema as a communal and transformative art form, and maintain excellence in our programming, business, and brand. We work to foster local and national talent, and Canadian cinema overall. We value inclusivity and diversity in our programming and overall organization, and we aim to reach, inspire, and educate new audiences.
