Help us bring more independent film programming to Atlanta!!

About the Project

Eyedrum, a nonprofit artist collective based in Atlanta, fosters the experimental and avant-garde across disciplines to create opportunities for dialogue, collaboration and growth in the contemporary art community. With an 18-year history of arts programming in Atlanta, Eyedrum has consistently supported expanding opportunities for local artists as well as being a beacon for touring national and international artists and musicians to exhibit in Atlanta. 

With this power2give campaign we are seeking funds to complete our cinema build-out. Located in the 1913 south downtown building we've been in the process of restoring and creating more space for art. In the last two years Eyedrum has invested in 16mm, 35mm and HD projection equipment. Eyedrum has been operating an indoor micro cinema as well as a rooftop 27ft screen. While these DIY efforts have been successful and Eyedrum has been able to offer an independent screen in Atlanta for local filmmakers, there are necessary updates to improve the cinema quality for our filmmakers and audience. 

Your contributions will go directly to:
- servicing film & video equipment
- building a projection booth
- bringing historic film prints to Atlanta on both 16mm and 35mm
programming consistent educational films
- screening opportunities for local filmmakers 
- improving the experience for audience members!!

Eyedrum, a 501(c)3 Georgia nonprofit, cultivates and provides a platform for the presentation of new artwork in all media and forms, emphasizing the experimental and the avant garde. Primarily run by volunteers, Eyedrum, remains a consistent venue for the arts and Atlanta with community and foundation support. 
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
