FilmNorth has started renovating our new, permanent home at 2441 University Avenue West, Saint Paul, into a state-of-the-art education and laboratory space for media artists that will be a model for the nation. For a donation of $2,500 or more, you can name a seat in our beautiful new cinema.

Seat naming donations are fully tax-deductible, and can be made via donor advised funds, check, credit card, wire, or stock transfer. Plaques can contain messages of one to four lines, up to 25 characters per line (including spaces). Examples include:

  • Your name(s)
  • The name of a loved one
  • The name of someone you wish to honor or remember
  • A favorite movie quote
  • A special date

Don’t miss out! Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reserve yours today.
Seat naming only applies to campaign gifts received starting [DATE], first-come, first-served. The seat you name does not indicate your seating location when attending a screening. Name plaques will remain for the duration of the usable life of the new seats. Please note that this contribution is separate from FilmNorth Memberships or Annual Fund gifts.


You are welcome to split the cost of a seat with friends and family. To set up a group payment plan, please email Max Becker ([email protected]) or call (651) 644-1912.
