The Wallabout Film Festival is an all student film festival, run by students in Brookyn, NY since 2009.

Update 4/10:

Thanks to our backers to date, we made our goal today! We are very grateful to this show of generosity and to Kickstarter's crowdfunding platform!

We still have over a week left in our campaign, however, so if you're still interested in donating, please feel free to do so! Our original goal of $2200 reflects only a portion of the overall costs related to organizing Wallabout, so any additional funds will help us make the event even better, especially for the attending student filmmakers whose work will be featured! Please give if you can, or share our campaign with others who might be interested. Thank you!

What's Wallabout?

The Wallabout Film Festival is a student film festival produced and programmed by an interdisciplinary team of students from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Showcasing films by innovative student filmmakers from around the world, Wallabout is a platform for students to screen their work to a diverse community of peers, artists, and industry professionals, initiating conversation and collaboration. Wallabout is an important forum for supporting student filmmaking and for adding to the vibrant creative culture of Brooklyn. 

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 2012 Wallabout Film Festival, our fourth edition, will take place at indieScreen Cinema in Williamsburg on the evening of Thursday, April 26th. More information on Wallabout is available at http://www.wallabout.org    

Why Kickstarter?

Wallabout is not a for-profit event. We have been allotted a very small budget from Pratt Institute to organize the festival and everything associated with it- from the venue rental to signage to the afterparty. Combined with ticket sales at the festival, we hope this Kickstarter campaign will help us make up a big portion of the remaining budget we need to ensure the smooth operation of the fourth annual festival. Backers' generous contributions will help cover the cost of our venue rental, promotional materials, program, and allow us to provide hospitality to participating student filmmakers.

As you may know, Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing crowdfunding site - if we don't make our goal by the end of the campaign, we get nothing. We would be extremely grateful for any amount you can contribute and for your help spreading the word about this campaign! And if you're in Brooklyn on April 26th, we hope to see you at Wallabout 2012!
