MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Fresno Film Festival is sponsored by Fresno Filmworks, a non-profit group committed to bringing independent, experimental and foreign films to Central California.

Our goal is to provide a film experience that is thought provoking and joyful for an audience hungry for alternatives to the multiplex.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
We invite filmmakers to join us in our celebration of cinema at the Fresno Film Festival at the historic 750-seat art deco Tower Theater, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Located mid-way between San Francisco and Los Angeles, Fresno is the largest inland city in California, and home to several colleges and universities. Fresno is both the center of the largest farm economy in the U.S. and the gateway to Yosemite National Park and the spectacular Sierra Nevada mountains. Fresno is home to one of the most ethnically diverse populations in California, with large Latino and Asian populations. Our festival encourages films that will appeal to diverse and underrepresented audiences.

Fresno Filmworks is a community-based non-profit group committed to showing independent, experimental and foreign films in Fresno. We are supported through the Fresno Arts Council and have a large and committed audience that attends our regular monthly film screenings.
