Southwest Michigan Film Festival Donate Logo

Ticket sales alone do not cover festival expenses, so your financial support is crucial to ensure that Southwest Michigan’s Jewish Film Festival thrives this year and in years to come.  Each donation category (see Donation Form below) has corresponding benefits to our donors, including Festival passes, individual tickets, or prime spots in the Festival program and on this website.  Business and individual sponsors can show their support for Jewish culture, with great options for publicity and recognition.  Whichever donation category you choose, all the benefits of giving are listed on the Sponsor Form (below).

Your tax-deductible donation to this unique cultural event can be made by choosing one of these two options:
