Tax Deductible Donations

Support Local Independent Filmmakers through

OM Film Fest

Independent Filmmakers’ Screening Opportunities

Patrons of the Cinema Arts can make tax-deductible contributions at Fractured Atlas, the fiscal sponsor for the Om Film Fest, in order for OM Film Fest to provide local screening opportunities to local independent filmmakers, at local movie theaters. 93% of all monies raised here will be used to provide actual screenings of the films of local independent filmmakers. 7% goes directly to Fractured Atlas to cover the cost of fiscal sponsorship. No money raised here goes to cover overhead, or any other costs of any kind other than those directly related to the screening of these films.

A $50 tax-deductible contribution covers the cost of screening a film short of a local independent filmmaker, at a major local movie theater, as part of a collective “short film” showcase, at an upcoming OM Film Fest (usually monthly).
A $100 tax-deductible contribution covers the cost of screening two film shorts of two local independent filmmakers, at a major local movie theater, as part of a collective “short film” showcase, at an upcoming OM Film Fest (usually monthly).
A $275 tax-deductible contribution covers the cost of screening one feature length independent film by a local independent filmmaker, at a major local movie theater at an upcoming OM Film Fest (usually monthly).
All other tax-deductible contributions will be applied towards costs as stated above.

For short films, OM Film Fest will use these tax deductible contributions to lease a local movie theater. At the same time, local filmmakers submit their film shorts to https://filmfreeway.com/festival/OMFilmFest. Upon acceptance, OM Film Fest will set up ticket sales to the short film showcase/OM Film Fest. The filmmakers screening their films will then be responsible to sell tickets to the entire short film showcase. Fifty percent of the tickets sales goes directly to the filmmakers. This is how OM Film Fest is introducing the "Fair Trade" concept to independent filmmaking. The remaining 50% of the tickets sales first goes as a set aside to pay for a new future screening, thereby perpetuating the screening opportunities from these donations, for local filmmakers, indefinitely.
