Collaboration, Support, and Networking
Encircle Films is grateful for opportunities to partner with organizations that support our mission of bringing important, informative, and action inspiring documentaries to the Eugene community.
As a non-profit organization, we rely on these relationships and actively seek sponsorships for individual film screenings throughout our seasons. These sponsorships help Encircle Films meet film rental and promotional costs. We also gratefully accept donations to support our efforts through the PayPal donation link on our website.
With your support, and that of our partners and sponsors, Encircle Films is able to continue our mission.
Please find a list of organizations here that we recognize and thank for their commitment to us.
The Art House is a vital partner for Encircle Films – this is our home! We began our journey bringing documentaries to Eugene 10 years ago at The Bijou, then moved to The Metro theater 5 years ago, and now we’re coming back to the Bijou’s new incarnation as Art House. We appreciate your loyalty in moving with us and we’re excited about the better viewing angles for all theater seats, improved sound system for panel discussions, and a lobby and courtyard that facilitates conversations before and after the films that Art House provides. And we’re thrilled to continue to support general manager Edward Schiessl as he creates a venue dedicated to community events.

CALC is still addressing many of the same issues that have defined it for decades: the struggle for racial justice, immigrant rights, economic justice and educational equity and opposing heterosexism, anti-Semitism and other isms.
