About Fresno Filmworks

Mission Statement
Established in 2002, Fresno Filmworks is your local source for independent film, curating the best art-house and international cinema for the central San Joaquin Valley. Through our monthly film series and the annual Fresno Film Festival, 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.

Virtual Cinema supports Fresno Filmworks and the independent distributors we love, from the comfort and safety of your home. Try it!
