AFAI - Nonprofit Information


As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization—under the stewardship of THE ATHENS FILM ARTS INSTITUTE (AFAI), an all-volunteer Athens-based Board of Directors—Ciné reflects and celebrates the complex tapestry of the community we serve. AFAI ensures that Ciné can continue its unique and vital role in Athens’ cultural life, helping to make our town a better place to live, work, visit, and do business. Our mission to inspire, educate, and build community through art and culture is at the core of everything we do.

Diversity and inclusion are core to our mission, and Ciné will continue working towards creating a diverse, warm and welcoming environment for all. We’re committed to this for our business and for the community. Cine serves all members of the community regardless of age, race, color, religion, creed, citizenship status, marital status, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, disability, or veteran status.
