One small word has many applications!

GIVE - Bequests, Monetary Donations

The Broward County Film Society is the very essence of non-profit. As a 501(c)(3) Non Profit Cultural Institution, your gift is tax-deductible (consult your accountant on IRS rules). We gladly accept both restricted (you can designate how you want your money spent!) and unrestricted (general operating funds aren't sexy, but they make the machine go!).

You can buy a theater chair and have your name inscribed! Then the chair can always be reserved just for you! 

It doesn't have to be cash...stocks are accepted as well. You can also donate property.

Consider Planned Giving and create your legacy with The Film Festival and Cinema Paradiso.

GIVE - Time

One of the most valuable gifts...your time. We need volunteers 365 days a year. At Cinema Paradiso Ft. Lauderdale and Hollywood locations, we need help answering the phone, selling tickets, ushering, cleaning, helping with gala events, cutting the grass, counting ballots...and away from CP we have outdoor movies, parties, community outreach, plus our outreach to Sunrise, Weston, Davie, Pompano, St Augustine and Grand Bahama Island.
