Support independent film

in your community!

If you have attended some of our events  and agree that films with an independent viewpoint are important for an engaged, informed and  democratic society, please donate to Percolator Films! Public funding and grant support for the arts have decreased dramatically in the past few years.  We need YOUR help to sustain the programs that you and so many others in the community enjoy.

Percolator Films is a 501c3 non-profit organization and your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by the law. You can either donate by sending us a check (instructions here >>>) or via PayPal.



Percolator Films is a non-profit media arts organization that produces and presents independent films that challenge, entertain, intrigue, engage, and inspire –  in short, films that provoke thought and discussion.  Read more about us here >>>

  1. Bullet Percolator Films was honored to receive a media production grant from the Illinois Humanities Council for COUNT ME IN. This new documentary tells a story about money & politics with a twist: on the backdrop of Chicago’s budget woes and citizen discontent, several Chicago Aldermen are turning their $1 million infrastructure funds over to community residents, who will decide directly how to spend taxpayer money.

  1. Bullet Evanston filmmaker May MayTchao’s debut documentary “SPILLED WATER: Women Defining their Worth” explores the lives of four Chinese women as their country's rapid economic transformation shifts their roles and rights as working mothers and daughters. In keeping with Percolator Films’ mission to support and nurture local independent filmmakers, we have consulted extensively with May throughout the production of her documentary and are looking forward to presenting it in Evanston later this year.
