Wallabout Film Festival is for students, by students.
Wallabout, named for a historical area of Brooklyn, NY, is Pratt Institute’s interdisciplinary student-run film festival whose goal is to support emerging young filmmakers. Wallabout is intended to act as a platform for young filmmakers to gain contacts among industry professionals in the NYC area, as well as confidence and knowledge to better inform their filmmaking. We wish to showcase, celebrate, and discuss student’s work from around the world with peers and industry professionals.
As a student-run organization, we want to help those who are on the cusp of their careers by promoting student work. We consider high school, undergraduate, and graduate works for programming, including work by recent graduates. The 2011 Wallabout Film Festival, our third edition, will take place at the landmark BAM Rose Cinemas on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th. More information on Wallabout is available at http://www.wallabout.org
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP:
Wallabout is not a for-profit event, and we have been allotted a very limited budget from Pratt to organize the festival and everything associated with it - from venue rental to signage. All funds we raise, including from ticket sales and from this Kickstarter campaign, will go to necessary expenses that will ensure the smooth operation of the 3rd annual festival. Donating to our Kickstarter campaign will help cover the cost of our venue rental, promotional materials, program, and help us provide hospitality to participating student filmmakers.
We would be extremely grateful for any donations you can make and for help spreading the word about this campaign! We're running the campaign for a few days after the festival, so there's even more time to consider making a contribution.
