TheFilmSchool supports emerging independent film artists. Together we are training and encouraging the directors and screenwriters of tomorrow to create the great and enduring stories of our time.

Help people tell their stories! Your support allows us to provide scholarships for talented budding filmmakers, as well as to underwrite public programs such as our First Tuesday Speakers Series and our exciting new Digital Media Innovation Lab. Your gifts also enable TFS to bring great actors and directors to Seattle for public dialogue, and will help with our goal to start a youth leadership development program for low income youth in our community.
