Guarantee Sponsors the Fresno Film Festival!

Posted on by

For over 15 years, Fresno Filmworks has been the local source for independent film. Through its monthly film series and the annual Fresno Film Festival at the historic Tower Theatre, The non profit strives to create a deeper appreciation of film, a better understanding of world culture, and an unforgettable experience that one will not find at a commercial theater.

“This is the sixth year in a row that Guarantee Good Will Network has sponsored our annual Fresno Film Festival, and we are excited to collaborate again. The charitable work of Guarantee Real Estate in our community is inspiring to us. We are grateful for the support, and we’re especially proud of our ongoing youth outreach initiatives-bringing area high school students and underserved community groups into the theater for free. Gifts like those from Guarantee directly support these projects.” –Jefferson Beavers, President Fresno Filmworks
