GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES + LOCAL PARTNERSHIPS = EDUCATION FOR ALL THROUGH FILM

FILM FESTIVAL

AVFilm and Equity

In order to truly become an organization that welcomes everyone and offers equitable access to our films and programs, we must shift to a proactive, equity-centered approach in all aspects of our work. Our Diversity/Equity/Belonging/Access Committee meets regularly, and we crafted a living document designed to serve as a blueprint forward. The Board of Directors has resolved to use this Equity Statement to drive our decisions in every area of who we are and what we do.

MISSION

Through the transformative power of film, AVFilm brings global perspectives into our community, builds partnerships to broaden our impact, and educates, empowers, and engages students of all ages.

Vision

To be an essential part of our community by inspiring and educating through film and media arts.

VALUES

EXCELLENCE – quality and integrity
CREATIVITY – encourage storytelling
COLLABORATION – building partnerships and sharing resources
INNOVATION – forward-thinking and independent
SOCIAL JUSTICE – inclusive and diverse
KINDNESS – hearing and respecting others
