St. Louis International Film Festival

In January 1992, a consortium of nonprofits and universities presented the first St. Louis Film Festival in April 1992. The St. Louis Film Festival Inc. was then established as a Missouri not-for-profit corporation in July 1992 and received its 501(c)3 status from the IRS in April 1993. In 1998, the organization changed its name to the St. Louis International Film Festival to emphasize the event's international component. In 2002, the organization was renamed Cinema St. Louis (CSL) to reflect its commitment to year-round programming beyond the festival. Cinema St. Louis now presents five annual film festivals and co-presents additional film-related programming throughout the year.
