Give to AGFA And Help Preserve A Legacy Of Genre Film

Tuesday, September 15, 2020 | News

For so many, COVID-19 has been a difficult storm to weather, not the least of which are 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations that rely on the contributions of donors passionate to their cause. One of the most important for horror fans, the American Genre Film Archive, which exists to preserve the legacy of genre movies through collection, conservation, and distribution, is putting out the call to genre film enthusiasts to give whatever they can to ensure that the archive can continue preserving, restoring, and releasing lost and disregarded cinematic marvels for years to come.

From Joe Ziemba, Director of AGFA:

We’re all running at full steam. But even as theaters slowly reopen, the return to financial capacity won’t happen overnight. Can you help us keep our mission alive during this time? If it’s $1 or $10,000, every bit helps. It will all go directly into keeping our team in action as we continue to navigate this challenging time. After you donate, remember to keep staying safe and helping others in need. And don’t forget to treat yourself and watch lots and lots of genre films.

To donate, as well as check out their catalog of downloads, physical releases, and theatrical bookings, visit the American Genre Film Archive.
