Dear Friends of the VFS,
Thank you for choosing to become a supporter of The Ventura Film Society. The VFS is an Arts, Education and Community resource under the generous sponsorship of Bell Arts Factory, a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit arts advocacy organization in Ventura, California. Contributions to the Ventura Film Society are fully tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.

We are dedicated to bringing "True Stories, Real People and New Cinema" to California's Central Coast. Our yearlong schedule of screenings and special events utilizes a variety of new and exciting historical venues in association with Project Encore, the City of Ventura and local businesses. These multiple activities include filmmaker tributes, public interaction with filmmakers, filmmaking mentorships and imaginatively programmed feature films, shorts, documentaries, animation and new cinema from around the world.

One of our most important initiatives is the "Neighborhood Cinema Program". This innovative and organic idea is at the core of the VFS. It will offer technical guidance and mentoring to aspiring filmmakers of all ages. It will blend local voices with global visions, encouraging those whose lives remain ignored to express themselves through the magic of cinematic storytelling.

The VFS also encourages local and international artists, singers, songwriters and performance artists to collaborate with us. We work with businesses and established arts, cultural and educational programs like the Ventura Music Festival, the Rubicon Theater and Focus on the Masters to serve as an umbrella festival within which all of the arts can blend and flourish.

By supporting the VFS your tax-deductible dollars go towards creating strong foundations for a growing arts and culture economy, bringing new and engaged audiences to Downtown Ventura and to other venues in Ventura County.

The Board Members and growing number of supporters of the Ventura Film Society greatly appreciate your generous donation. Thank you for helping us entertain and engage the community through the vibrancy of alternative cinema.
