Help Support Facets Cinematheque

The following letter regarding Facets, Chicago's historic cinematheque located at 1517 W Fullerton Ave., was recently written by executive director Milos Stehlik and associate director Mary Visconti. 

Today, more than ever, we need diverse voices to be heard. Now, more than ever we need you to support and strengthen Facets. 

The world will not cure itself. It needs our urgent help. Please give to Facets today to keep that hope alive.

Help us continue to use film to combat a climate of threats, violence, and fear by screening, discussing, and teaching films that open communication between adults and children of diverse backgrounds and divergent points of view.

Help us build a united voice to save the planet through empathy and understanding.

  • More than 50% of the participants in the over 126 Facets Kids Film Camps we have presented each year attend on full scholarship, based on need, recommended by principals and teachers from schools in low-income areas.
  • We have been fiercely independent since 1975, committed to celebrating creative voices for over 41 years, and are now the only independent non-profit full time art cinema in Chicago.
  • 54% of the films we screened last year were films by women and 28% by filmmakers of color.

Your support today counts more than ever.

Thank you.
