FIlmScene successfully raised over $175,000 to open our Scene 1 cinema from community members and businesses who shared our vision of a downtown home for film. Now, our ongoing mission depends on your  continued support.

To ensure a bright future for film in downtown Iowa City FilmScene has developed the Founders Circle: a pioneering group of at least 100 visionary donors at $1,000 and up. Community leaders, arts supporters, business owners and many more have joined our campaign to create a lasting addition to our community.

The final opportunity to join the Founders Circle closes in first quarter of 2014.

Founders Circle supporters will be honored permanently with an on-site public art piece recognizing their visionary contribution. Donors also receive invitation to first-year special events and one year of sustaining membership.
