Support 50 Years of Film at Lincoln Center

For 50 years, Film at Lincoln Center has been devoted to the art and craft of the moving image. Founded on May 9, 1969, FLC has since held the position of New York City’s preeminent film nonprofit. Through retrospectives, festivals, and free talks, we have brought audiences closer to filmmakers, actors, and critics. None of this, however, would be possible without the generosity of individuals like yourself; fellow movie lovers who can appreciate the impact of cinema on our lives. Thank you for the invaluable role you have played in the organization’s first 50 years, and we hope you’ll continue to support us throughout the next 50!
