Donate this spring

Help us support burgeoning filmmakers!

Aspen Film just wrapped Shortsfest, our flagship festival for spring. Congratulations to all of our incredible filmmakers for screening their work for our Aspen audience.

This Spring, YOU can support our Oscar®-qualifying Shortsfest, or other great content like it.

As Aspen Film springs forward, next year, we’ll present even more quality programming at the Aspen Film Isis Theatre, and we need your support.

Then look for our Summer of Cinema season, with a variety of film series, partnerships in the community and special events.

You can support the growth of this institution today; help Aspen Film spring forward with a donation of any size. From now until June 15, we hope to raise $25,000. Click on Spring Appeal 2023 to give now.



Aspen Film seeks to spark fresh ideas and foster dialogue among filmmakers and cinema-goers alike, by elevating diverse voices and presenting content through a lens of inclusion. Your year-end donation to Aspen Film allows us to engage with filmmakers from around the globe and share their diverse perspectives with our community. The power of cinema breaks down barriers and encourages film enthusiasts to connect and engage with each other over shared themes, timely topics, and creative conversation.


Aspen Film educates youth in our community by providing free and low-cost filmmaking opportunities to local and visiting students. Your gift to Aspen Film this holiday season will support the following education outreach initiatives:

  • Film Camp – each summer, campers get hands-on experience creating their own short film. These popular sessions provide students with opportunities to gain real world skills and learn the ins-and-outs of filmmaking from current Colorado Film School professors.
  • FilmEducates – Aspen Film provides extensive free programs for youth and educators. We bring renowned filmmakers into the classroom, allow students to participate in in-depth panel discussions with industry professionals, and more.


Aspen Film is a world class film society that is inclusive of both the serious cinephile and the casual movie lover. Our Members receive invitations to attend exclusive Sneak Preview screenings, watch buzzy Indie Showcase titles, music films, cutting edge documentaries and more.
