AFAI - Nonprofit Information

ATHENS FILM ARTS INSTITUTE

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.

We’re committed to this for our business and for the community.
