Recently, we shared an article on twitter on what it takes to run a festival. We always hopes it FEELS like magic, but the truth is, there's a lot of prep going on behind the scenes. A gazillion moving parts. Hundreds of volunteer hours. Venue contracts. Equipment rental. Printing costs...
This year, we're starting off our membership drive as a kickstarter. We invite you to be a part of our little festival: become a backer here.
We'll add it up with all of the others to create one deliciously amazing film festival, right here in Indy at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. And when you come to the fest this summer, you'll know you own a little piece of it. And a big hunk of our gratitude.
The gratitude comes with each gift, but we've also cooked up a whole host of perks for various levels. We're offering up everything from movie passes to a reserved seat in the theatre for the duration of the festival. Fancy stuff.
Please join us by giving, asking your friends to donate and shouting out the good word to help us reach our goal of $4,000!
