As a non-profit organization, Cine Las Americas depends on the contributions of people like you to accomplish its mission. For most non-profits, 80 to 95% of operating budgets come from individual donors. Right now, individual contributions account for less than 10% of our budget. We need to change this.

Since 1997, Cine Las Americas has been a resource for multinational film exhibition, distribution and projection. We are also committed to creating exhibition spaces for traditionally underrepresented groups and to offering special support to minority filmmakers based in Texas and the rest of the United States. Central to this mission is the annual Cine Las Americas International Film Festival, now in its 17th year, showcasing an average of 120 films from over 30 different countries. Your contribution to the Save Cine Las Americas campaign helps to give a well-deserved place to films of artistic excellence, high entertainment value, and cultural diversity that otherwise would not find public exhibition platforms in Texas.
