About

$3,510

16

Our festival only showcases films other fests rejected; their trash is our treasure, thus we give Treasure Can Awards to our winners. Our goal for this Kickstarter Campaign is to raise enough money to cover the venue costs and bring more indie film to ATL. We are here to celebrate the films and filmmakers that other festivals overlooked. There is a lot of work that goes into making a film, and those efforts should be celebrated. We showcase films and our team of filmmakers and film critics provide professional and constructive criticism. Our goal is to help artists make the best films they can. By donating to this festival, you are supporting independent artists and filmmakers.

Check us out at on FaceBook, Instagram @rejectedreels and  at rejectedreels.com. 

Risks and challenges

The first year of a festival is difficult. It's hard to get the funding needed to pull off an amazing festival, unless you already have sponsors. I used all of my savings to try and put this together.
