Film is in a unique position to shine a light on issues and events, helping us to bear witness to our times. We cannot publicly ignore or unsee what we have seen.  Cinemas have the power to illuminate and expose issues, give voice to stories, center the marginalized and advocate for new ways to frame the present and move into the future.  As an organization, Pickford Film Center will use its screens to illuminate, expose, give voice, humanize and advocate. 

Pickford Film Center stands in solidarity with Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) communities across America to say racism against AAPI is real; racist misogyny, sexism and femicide are real and racist acts must stop. 

Pickford Film Center stands in solidarity with Black communities across America to say enough is enough. Black lives matter. Without justice there is no peace and if we remain silent we are complicit in their perpetuation.

Pickford Film Center acknowledges our debt to the Coast Salish people and Indigenous people across America.  The epidemic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women is real: racist misogyny, sexism and femicide must stop.

We call on our community to pay attention, to check your bias, to speak up, to understand the issues and to be generous to the organizations that are fighting to make an equitable future possible for everyone.

In this spirit, we share with you resources and organizations that are working on behalf of justice.

Thank You To Our Funders

On behalf of the Pickford Film Center staff and board we would like to acknowledge that we are located on the traditional, ancestral lands of the Lhaq’te’mish (Lummi Nation) and Nuxwsá7aq (Nooksack) Tribe, as well as all other Salishan families who, from time immemorial, share the ancestral homelands and salt waters of Whatcom County and the Salish Sea.
