Supporting gender-marginalized filmmakers through community, visibility, and education.

$500 goal

Moonplay Cinema is an artist-run organization supporting gender-marginalized filmmakers through community and visibility. We use community-building strategies to offer safe spaces for connections and collaboration, ultimately creating more opportunities for the artistic careers of underserved and under-resourced artists. We are experimental moving image artists, animators, narrative filmmakers, and documentarians. 48% of our participants are BIPOC artists, 70% identify as LGBTQ+, and 20% live with a disability.

We strive to explore the possibility of what a cinema can be.

A cohort of gender-marginalized artists practicing in moving image mediums is rising from our current programming, demonstrating a need for our resources. We are scaling up our services to meet this need so that we can build capacity and reach more people who need our support and community. Thus, our 2023/24 educational and event programming includes expanding access to mentorship, workshops, and professional development materials. These resources are often neglected as part of film-based educational programming. We seek to resolve this through our commitment to supporting underserved and underrepresented filmmakers who work across many different genres and mediums. 

Please consider donating any amount you can to support this work! We are fiscally sponsored by Springboard for the Arts.
