Membership

 

Just about everyone has a favorite movie. If you really love film, though, you know that meaningful moviegoing requires looking beyond the multiplex. At the Denver Film Society, we believe in the power and urgency of great cinema and aim to share the best films from around the world with our audiences. Often, you’ll be surprised by our offerings—sometimes even challenged. But always, you’ll see something new and interesting that helps to expand your understanding of the world. If that’s an idea you can get behind, then we invite you to make a difference at DFS by becoming a member and directly supporting our efforts to cultivate community and transform lives through film. No matter what level you choose to support DFS, your contributions will be enormously appreciated!
