Beyond Normal Films is pleased to announce the implementation of the BNF Cinema Arts Project. This initiative is in response to the expanded mission of BNF to offer greater support to the cinema arts in the community. The mission statement now includes:
...to provide cultural and educational activities in support of the cinema arts in Bloomington-Normal and Central Illinois.
The Cinema Arts Project Fund, administered for BNF by the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation, provides a permanent funding base and the framework for an ongoing commitment to cinema arts awareness, education, and creativity--large and small--within the community.
