Astoria Film Festival Inc (AFF) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that, in addition to an annual film festival, runs in-school filmmaking workshops and provides local filmmakers with screenings, production assistance, and a supportive community.

If you're able to donate, please consider a small donation to AFF to enable us to continue our film education and outreach.

Your donations help us fund scholarships for our workshops and waivers for our festival for those who need them. They also help us bring our workshops, speaker series, and master classes to schools who request them either at no to very low cost. Additionally, donations provide our Film Fellows with paid work experiences that in turn help local businesses and nonprofit organizations.

Donations also help us provide local filmmakers with free screenings, production assistance, and a supportive local filmmaking community.
