What is a sustaining membership?

Sustaining memberships will launch with our platform Summer 2023.

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, we are a donor-supported platform. 

Sustaining members are a part of our Pay It Forward program that provides free membership passes to the public. This advances our mission by bringing more attention to our indie films and educational content. Without our generous donors, this would not be possible.

Sustaining members get access to all films and our exclusive community.

All donations are tax-deductible. 

Who's behind CiVL
