Description

Film Forum is a 4-screen independent cinema in downtown New York City, open 365 days a year, with 275,000 annual admissions, 7000 members and a $5 operating budget. We present NYC theatrical premieres of foreign art films, American independents and documentaries. Our repertory selections include new and restored prints of foreign and American classics, genre works, festivals and directors' retrospectives.

Objective

As a cinema of ideas, Film Forum is committed to presenting an international array of films that treat diverse social, political, historical and cultural realities. Unlike commercial cinemas that primarily “book” high-grossing, Hollywood films, Film Forum’s programs are thoughtfully curated, with attention to unique cinematic qualities, historical importance individually or within a genre and, particularly for documentaries, relevance to today’s world.
