Meet Nate Close, the Cinema Art Centre's New Director of Marketing and Communications
Nate Close, Director of Marketing and Communications, Cinema Arts Centre
This month we are pleased to welcome a new Director of Marketing and Communications to our Cinema Arts Centre family. Nate Close is a Town of Huntington native whose background working in Huntington has helped foster his love and connection to our community.

Nate is a graduate from Bernard M. Baruch College in Manhattan, having specialized in Digital and Cultural Communications. Nate has done extensive research on how media, film, and digital spaces impact our identities and the communities we take part in. Some of his passions include volunteer work, social justice, and working to help provide access to education and a voice to marginalize groups. As part of our Cinema Arts Centre community Nate hopes to foster diversity, inclusivity, and community involvement while bringing more visibility to the wonderful events and screenings we offer.

Like the rest of our Cinema Arts community, Nate is a film lover. He has taken a particular interest in female filmmakers and their impact on film history. Some of his favorites include Ida Lupino , Agnes Varda , and Jane Campion .

We are happy to have Nate working hard to support our organization and helping us build upon our already great community. 
Call for Volunteers
There has been much talk about raising capital funds, and this is so important, especially as 80% of our revenue in invested in programs for our community and just 20% goes to all administration and overhead. But we also must raise program and operating support every year.

The Life of OUR Cinema Campaign is our annual appeal for general operating support.

The Cinema Arts Centre earns an average of $7 per attendee annually, yet our annual expenses average $17 per attendee. That means we need to raise an extra $10 for everyone who comes to a CAC program. Your fully tax-deductible Life of OUR Cinema gift (in addition to your membership support) makes you part of the movement that helps us deliver our mission, to bring the best in cinematic artistry to our community, year after year.

An important part of our campaign is to engage volunteers from our community to not only make a campaign gift, but to ask their own contacts to join them in supporting our community cinema. These volunteers are often members of our Circle of Friends volunteer group, but any member can become a volunteer campaigner.

We will launch our campaign in mid-October. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a volunteer campaigner , please email .
 The Cinema Arts Centre is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. The mission of the Cinema Arts Centre is to bring the best in cinematic artistry to Long Island, and use the power of film to expand the awareness and consciousness of our community.
Thanks to our August Program Sponsors:
Thanks to Stuart and Ginger Polisner for their ongoing support of our Real-to-Reel and Creativity Series.

When you visit a business that supports the cinema, please let them know how much it means to you.
