Frameline2020 Fund

The Frameline2020 Fund is a year-long initiative to help offset significant financial losses associated with the postponement of Frameline44 due to COVID-19 – funds that will strengthen Frameline long into the future.

Your donation today helps ensure the continuity of Frameline’s vital programs in filmmaker development, distribution, education, and for presenting a vibrant Frameline44 this fall.

With the unprecedented emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting postponement of our customary June festival, Frameline has experienced a rapid reduction in revenue from delayed or reduced sponsorship, ticket sales and memberships. Even with the considerable measures we have taken to cut expenses during this time, and even after very helpful federal, local and institutional support, we estimate our shortfall this year will be a minimum of $250,000, and likely much higher.

To survive and thrive, we need significant individual donor support that will sustain our valuable programs and services, including the new ways that Frameline is responding to the crisis with enhanced virtual screenings and online LGBTQ+ content, at a crucial time for at-home learning and viewing.

Every dollar donated to the Frameline2020 Fund will go directly to these hard program costs in 2020. Any amount of support is greatly appreciated.
