Friends of Canyon Cinema 2021-2022

Join our community of experimental cinema lovers!

For over 50 years, Canyon Cinema has served as one of the world’s preeminent sources for avant-garde and experimental media, distributing the works of nearly 300 artists to an international assortment of vibrant festivals and historic cinematheques; to an underground teeming with microcinemas, itinerant and one-off showcases, and unsponsored, unpublicized living-room gatherings; to a thousand classrooms filled with enchanted students; and now, to an increasingly networked, online global audience.

By becoming a Friend of Canyon Cinema, you will help to ensure that our community of film and media artists receives the support and enrichment it deserves, through Canyon's dogged distribution, enthusiastic advocacy, and continued promotion of research and scholarship. Your commitment will be indispensable as work to expand our distribution program, upgrade our website, promote the collection through new streaming partnerships and programming initiatives such as our Canyon Cinema Salon, Canyon-on-Demand, and Canyon at The Roxie series, and continue our ambitious new curatorial fellowship, Canyon Cinema Discovered. 

As part of Canyon's extended network of film lovers, you will directly support these activities. Canyon has always depended on the generosity and passion of its community—please join us as we look to the future! 

You can now become a Friend of Canyon on Patreon
