Chlotrudis Society Needs Your Help!

The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film began its 12th year as a 501(c)3, non-profit organization this summer, and we’re busier than ever! As a non-profit, membership-driven organization, we are committed to teaching audiences to view films actively and to increase awareness about independent, international and documentary film through our Annual Awards Program and Ceremony, special screening series at partner theaters, partnerships with film festivals, and our online news and reviews. We are in the midst of our Annual Fund drive and we are asking for your help to insure that we are able to provide members with some exciting programs and events over the coming year.

The Annual Fund ends on October 31, so we urge you to support our work by making a donation today. As a volunteer-run organization, every dollar you donate will go directly to funding our programs and events. Whether you donate $25 or $250, your tax-deductible contribution will help Chlotrudis to flourish—supporting our educational programs and many film-related endeavors.

There are five major initiatives that we hope to fund in Fiscal Year 2011:

  • Chlotrudis is partnering with the Brattle Theatre to launch a new discovery series tentatively titled “CineCache” which will feature new films that haven’t played in Boston. We hope to bring in filmmakers and other experts to hold post-film discussions.
  • Update our website to provide easier access to information and a more interactive, social environment for members across the country.
  • Bring filmmaker guests to the Awards Ceremony and fund the after-party.
  • Support area film festivals through co-presentations and sponsorships
  • Design and update the Chlotrudis logo and tagline and related marketing material

We depend on your support to make all of these things happen! Chlotrudis relies almost completely on its members through dues and donations to operate. We are completely volunteer-run, with no paid employees, so all of your donation will go to supporting the activities we provide to our members. Donations to Chlotrudis are fully tax-deductible.

To donate by credit card visit our website at: and scroll to the bottom of the page where it says, “Make a donation to Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film.” You can enter any amount you wish and the funds will be immediately transferred to our account.

Thanks for supporting the Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film,

Chlotrudis Board of Directors
