FilmShop is a member-led and funded organization with dues for the Season at $75. If this amount is financially infeasible, dues can be lessened for individuals on a sliding scale. However, to keep it all fair, we ask those who receive a reduction to "make up" the difference in another way (leading a workshop, organizing a screening or reading, etc.) Please indicate if you need a dues reduction and how you can provide enrichment for the other members.
