About Facets

At Facets we connect 30k+ people annually to independent ideas through film.

Film is extremely important. You could even say it is the principal mode of contemporary communication. By better understanding film and the language it uses, we can better understand how our media-saturated culture is constructed.

Made Possible By

Facets programs are made possible with the support of individual contributors, corporate sponsors, private and public foundations, and government agencies.

Without the support of these institutions and individuals, we would not be able to continue to connect people to the world of independent film and ideas.
