The Frida Cinema 10-Hour Social Distancing Stream-A-Thon Fundraiser 2!

The Frida Cinema 10-Hour Social Distancing Stream-A-Thon Fundraiser #2!

Join us for #GivingTuesdayNow this Tuesday, May 5th, as we bring you our second fundraising livestream — The Frida Cinema 10-Hour Social Distancing Stream-A-Thon Fundraiser #2!

Trevor Dillon, our Programming Director/Special Events Coordinator will be online from 12pm to 10pm as we live-stream our own digital variety show.

Trevor will catch up with current and former Frida volunteers about their favorite memories at The Frida and play various film-related games! There will also be interviews with Frida partners, including distributors, along with trailers for upcoming films that will be available to stream via our Virtual Cinema!

We’ll be asking for donations throughout the show, and thanking donors as donations come in! Donations can be made at, or by texting the word FILM to 714-276-6080!

#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
