Donations are vital in enabling us to provide a diverse and ambitious programme of film and events, as well as helping us to run educational projects, community activities, school screenings and other work to engage people with the moving image throughout the year.

Your support is greatly received and, big or small, your donation will be helping us in our ambitions to do more.

You can also increase your charitable donation, thanks to the Gift Aid scheme that allows us to claim an additional 25p for every pound you donate, at no extra cost to you.

If you wish to make a donation, you can either donate online or give it directly to our Front of House staff at Filmhouse Box Office.

Leave a Legacy

In 2018 Filmhouse celebrates its 40th anniversary as Scotland’s leading independent cinema. We wish to ensure that future generations are able to enjoy and be inspired by the exciting programme of films, events and learning opportunities we are presenting all year round.

By remembering Filmhouse in your will, you will be helping us to continue investing in showing incredible films each year, celebrating world cinema in all its brilliance and diversity as well as in continuing to develop our ambitious film education programme.

More information on leaving a Legacy is available here and you can download the codicil form here.
