AFI DALLAS Partners with North Texas Food Bank

From its inception, the AFI DALLAS International Film Festival has looked to collaborate and partner with other film, arts and cultural organizations in the area. For this first festival, AFI DALLAS has aligned itself with a number of these organizations - from other film festivals in the area, to film and video professional groups and other cultural and community organizations to support their good works in building a stronger, better community.

The North Texas Food Bank is one of those valued Community Partners. The North Texas Food Bank has distributed to its clients and agencies 1,500 free family passes to the Festival's family-friendly programming. AFI DALLAS is also supporting the North Texas Food Bank's programs by offering a ticket discount to any audience member in exchange for canned food they bring to the theater.

Patrons can take two canned food items to the Central Market on Lover's Lane and receive a coupon at the Information Desk for $2 off the general admission price for any AFI DALLAS screening. They can also bring their cans straight to the theaters and receive their discount at the Magnolia or Angelika.

Join AFI DALLAS in supporting the excellent work done by the North Texas Food Bank.
