We need you
to ensure the sustainability and future of pioneering film centers like the SNF Parkway
Because of support from our audience, we have been able to persevere and navigate this unprecedented moment and boldly move forward with new approaches and programs to drive community engagement; opportunities and resources for local filmmakers, artists and youth to tell their stories; and strengthen film culture in Baltimore.
