CFI Community Screenings Series
Co- Presented by Marin Community Foundation
With the support of the Marin Community Foundation, the California Film Institute is partnering with local non-profit (501c3) organizations in producing film events that directly benefit the organizations. For each of the programs in this series, 100% of the proceeds go to the beneficiary organization. In appreciation of the tremendous support shown to us by our community members and fellow Marin non-profits, this program was created to celebrate good work through the powerful medium of film, and to ensure the Rafael's continued vibrancy as a cultural resource.
