At Winter Film Awards, we believe in independent film, and we believe that it is critically important for a wide variety of artists to get a chance to tell their stories. Winter Film Awards is a true labor of love, but, sadly, love alone is not enough to pay the bills and we are seeking your help to keep going.
The generous support of individuals has allowed us to provide hundreds of thousands of individuals of all ages with high-quality programming. As a year-round nonprofit arts organization, your support is needed to continue that programming. Tickets only cover 60% of our operating expenses…which is why we need your support. There are many ways to get involved and many ways to support us….
