RAGTAG FILM SOCIETY
With cinema as a focal point, Ragtag Film Society exists to captivate and engage communities in immersive arts experiences that explore assumptions and elicit shared joy, wonder, and introspection.
RFS VALUES – The following four values are interlocking, and are essential to everything we do.
INTEGRITY – We practice decision-making, programming, and presentation with respect, accountability, and transparency.
INCLUSIVITY – We honor the dignity of every human. We are an organization of diverse individuals possessing a variety of perspectives, identities, and lived experiences. We recognize that to create an inclusive and intellectually vibrant community, we must understand and value both our individual differences and our collective similarities. All ideas are welcomed as part of a culture of creative initiative bolstered by close collaboration, fierce debate, and rigorous vetting.
PLAYFULNESS – We believe that cinema, music, art, and education are vital and transformative, and when presented in a high-spirited and fun environment, that transformation is elevated. We approach our work with the same expectation of fun, satisfaction, and transformation.
SUSTAINABILITY – We aspire to create a sustainable experience for our staff and volunteers, work towards a greener world, and bolster the artistic contributors who fuel our programming. We support that which sustains us, and internally we are nimble and adaptable, which allows us to respond quickly to new opportunities and challenges.
