Italian Festivals of New Mexico (IFNM) is a 501(c)(3), all-volunteer, nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote Italian culture in New Mexico. Its flagship event, the annual NM Italian Film & Culture Festival, is dedicated to supporting children in need. The festival is a multi-day celebration of Italian cinema and culture, and affords the opportunity to enjoy the Italian experience through great films and events while improving the lives of children in our state. Since its inception in 2007, the NM Italian Film & Culture Festival has donated well over $300,000 to children’s causes.

Festival 2019’s beneficiary is NDI New Mexico, a nonprofit organization that brings award-winning arts and healthy lifestyle programs to underserved children in urban, rural and Native American communities throughout New Mexico.

Your donations throughout the year ensure that IFNM can continue to produce its award-winning festival. Your gifts, large or small, help set the foundation for the next successful festival by enabling us to pay for the many up-front and hidden expenses like postage, banking fees, venue rentals and film rights. Your dollars generate more dollars that in turn, generate hope and health for children in need.

Your generosity is sincerely appreciated and tax-deductible, and your contact information will not be shared.
