Enjoy the fellowship of reading, writing, listening, and watching.  Share your own artistic works with appreciative audiences, or mix-and-match your creative spirit with the artistry of others to create one of life’s greatest pleasures, unified gasps of appreciation on a grand scale.

America set the benchmark for quality of life when our founders made imaginative works financially viable for individuals like all of us via copyright law.  Music, photography, drawings, wardrobe designs, and written words, are frontline examples of informed imagination that are intellectual properties.  Combined uniquely the magic of their chemistry becomes the gestalt of motion pictures.

Inform the imagination, and it will enrich those it serves.  EIFF support for the arts benefits both local and international festival participants, and their audiences.  Presently the ongoing networking and friendships that develop during EIFF virtual meetings have been inspirational to watch as they take place.

How many creative ideas are you juggling?  Imagine them fully and make this your year to participate in their rewards.  Join in the fellowship of the EIFF community to make informed imagination an available reality for youth, elders and everyone in between.  Please donate now.
