Connecting the Hudson Valley through transformative cinematic experiences

Vision

We believe that the moving image—the most powerful storytelling force in human history—can shape a kinder, safer, more equitable and sustainable world. We bring together our neighbors, filmmakers, artists, schools and organizations, along with visitors to our region, using movies and other media-based storytelling. Our programs build empathy, a sense of connection and a stronger appreciation of our communities and our planet.
