We hope that you and yours are safe and sane during this crisis. We are with you!

Many have asked us how they can support the Alexander Valley Film Society to help us weather this storm. We love being able to provide a diverse array of online options through our Shelter in Place Series for all ages to help us #StayConnected through film. And now, you can help us keep our series going through and beyond the crisis.

With a contribution of $25 or more, you will have access to all of our Shelter in Place Series programming, PLUS additional members-only screenings, AND a private Facebook Group featuring viewing suggestions and the ability to connect with other AVFS patrons.

NOTE: The recently enacted government stimulus bill (the "CARES Act") provides some additional tax relief for donors. If you take the standard deduction on your 2020 tax return, you can claim a brand new "above-the-line" deduction of up to $300 for cash donations you make this year to charity.

Please consider joining us. It's a great way to give back and a super fun way to #StayConnected!

All contributions are fully tax-deductible.

We now have a dedicated fund for you to choose when you want to support our educational efforts!

Did you know that the Alexander Valley Film Society brings film studies and project-based filmmaking to more than 1,000 Sonoma County students? With a gift from you, we can expand our reach even further in 2020!

The Adam Burke Student Fund was launched to ensure that all local students have full access to the Alexander Valley Film Festival and our year-round educational opportunities. The fund has been named in honor of Adam Burke, a founding Board member of the Alexander Valley Film Society, who passed away in October 2018. He led the organization’s first student-focused workshops and served as the defining voice in the creation of the Film Society’s comprehensive educational services. A devoted father and animator at Pixar Animation Studios, Adam was an engaging and inspiring presence for kids of all ages.

Here's a letter Adam wrote to a student after the 2016 Student Film Competition:

Hi "J,"

It's Adam Burke from Pixar. I was speaking to Kathryn recently and your name came up in conversation. We spoke about how dedicated you've been with the film society and how hard you've been working. I just wanted to take a second to drop you a line [of] encouragement. It was great to see you and your brother submit to the student film contest last fall. Keep at it and keep pushing yourself to learn and grow.

Seeing you get excited about using film to express your creativity is THE reason why Kathryn and so many of us have put our effort into creating the film society. If you're passionate and truly excited about film, I have no doubt that your work will make it to the screen someday. I know it sounds like a corny cliche, but the only one who can get in your way is you.

Keep at it, "J."  I'm looking forward to bragging to people in the future about how far you've come from your "comedy kung-fu days." ;-)
