TCM Spotlights MPTF in September

Each Wednesday night in September 2017 during primetime, Turner Classic Movies featured host Ben Mankiewicz in conversation with our MPTF family including residents, donors and supporters before and after a selection of feature films. All four nights helped viewers to find out more about the incredible history of MPTF and meet some of the people who make it so special! 

MPTF honors those who devote their professional careers to telling stories like these. Each night showed how every dollar given to MPTF helps support our wide variety of programs and services, from the in-house creativity found at MPTF 22 to the assistance and education we provide throughout the entertainment community.   Last year, we provided over $9 million in support of those who continue to make the entertainment industry their home. You can help show your support, too, by donating today.
