With the holiday season rapidly approaching, it’s easy to get wrapped up in all the hustle and bustle of Black Friday, Shop Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. But this year, another event has been brought to my attention, #GivingTuesday. On Tuesday December 3rd, the nation will come together to celebrate and encourage the charitable activities that support nonprofits, who work tirelessly throughout the year to build their communities, and PFS is happy to be one of 5,000 organizations participating.
PFS is fortunate to be able to give back to the community in a variety of ways. During the Philadelphia Film Festival, we have the PFF on Us and Student Education programs. Most recently, we were able to make 30% of the inaugural Philadelphia Independent Children’s Film Festival free of charge, and we are look forward to beginning our Filmadelphia at the Roxy Series, through which local filmmakers can screen their work. None of these programs would be possible without the your support.
One of Philadelphia’s greatest attributes is its booming art culture and we’re proud to be listed among Philadelphia’s nonprofit staples like the Art Museum, the Zoo and The Barnes Foundation (to name a few…). We can’t wait to officially re-open the PFS Theater at the Roxy, the new home of PFS, and launch year-round screenings and education programs that will enhance cinematic culture throughout Philadelphia.
Come Tuesday Dec. 3rd (#GivingTuesday), we invite you to support PFS in our efforts to complete the renovation of the PFS Theater at the Roxy through our Text To Give campaign. By having our own venue, PFS will be able to expand our free ticketing programs exponentially and share the power of film with the entire Philadelphia community. Our work wouldn’t be possible without your generous support.
