About Fresno Filmworks

Mission Statement
Since 2002, Fresno Filmworks is your local source for independent film. Through our monthly film series and the annual Fresno Film Festival at the historic Tower Theatre, our all-volunteer nonprofit strives to cultivate a deeper appreciation of cinema, a greater understanding of the world’s cultures, and a meaningful movie experience that cannot be found at the commercial multiplex.

Values Statement
We value and are committed to:
• Cinema as an essential component of lifelong learning and enjoyment;
• The needs and interests of our multicultural, multilingual community;
• The evolution of the movie experience in the digital age;
• Collaboration and partnerships with diverse community organizations, businesses, and individuals;
• A culture of open communication and the highest professional standards.

Every second Friday of the month, Fresno Filmworks screens first-run independent and international movies at the historic Tower Theatre.
