The GARF is committed to helping the next generation of independent filmmakers. In 2016, George A. Romero worked with the Douglas Education Center in Monessen, Pennsylvania, to relaunch its filmmaking program. The GARF will continue to honor George's vision by raising funds for students who wish to participate in the program.
