Dear Friends and Supporters,
I'm thrilled to announce that at 3:01 AM Tuesday morning we reached and surpassed our goal of $15,000! We can't thank you enough for helping us get there. This means we can fund our opening at the Quad Cinema, March 23 - 29.
Now we have just 4 days left and we're pushing to get to $20,000 by midnight Saturday, March 17. These additional funds will make it possible to bring AN ENCOUNTER WITH SIMONE WEIL to other communities across the country and the world, covering such costs as a theatrical booker and publicist, targeted online promotion, publicity materials, and a discussion guide.
If you, our supporters, each increase your pledge by just $20 we'd get there! And to thank you we'll give you our latest reward: an iconic Simone Weil T-Shirt (pictured below) designed by our very own Mazal Bohbot Berrie. We also still have one set of VIP tickets to the opening-night screening & party on March 23, and an Associate Producer credit for $2,500.
To close, here's some exciting news: I can't supply much detail yet, but we've just learned that the film will have its UK and Canadian festival premieres in May! Stay tuned for more updates.
With heartfelt gratitude,
