Established in February 2002, the Martha’s Vineyard Film Society, Inc. is a member-funded 501 (c)(3) non-profit arts organization dedicated to screening the best in independent films, movie classics, documentaries, and world cinema for diverse audiences of all ages throughout the calendar year.
In September of 2012 the MVFS proudly completed the construction of the Martha’s Vineyard Film Center, which houses the Marilyn Meyerhoff Theatre, a state of the art digital cinema and stage with 177 stadium configured seats.
Although offering an enriched film program is the primary reason the MVFS exists, the Society also presents film-related speakers, educational programs, and special events to enhance this main mission all while increasing the public’s appreciation of fine cinema in all of its forms.
Since opening in 2012, the MVFS has presented over 300 feature films to over 50,000 patrons at the Martha’s Vineyard Film Center. The Film Center is also host to the FILMusic Festival in June and the Martha’s Vineyard International Film Festival in September.
