The Seattle True Independent Film Festival has always relied on the support of the Film Community to produce our Festival. This year we wanted to use Kickstarter as a tool to reach out to the community and let everyone know how easy it is to become a Supporter and a Sponsor and to make it clear how we recognize your contributions. This year we need your support more than ever to make our 8th year possible.

We are a 501(c)3 Non-Profit and an All Volunteer Staff of over 30 individuals that work together to produce the Festival. Our Mission is to Support the Film Community by presenting the work of Filmmakers to an audience that really appreciates the opportunity to see it.

Putting on a Film Festival is more than just showing films. We are well know for our Parties and Special Events that bring people together and encourage networking and socializing between Local Filmmakers, Visiting Filmmakers, Industry and Fans.

Funds raised through this Kickstarter Campaign will go to putting deposits on our Theaters & Venues, Creating and Printing Marketing Materials, Hiring an Artist to create an Original Design for our Posters and doing everything we can to Promote the Festival. 

We would really like you to be a part of STIFF 2012 and you can start by making a contribution to our Kickstarter Campaign. You can also help by mentioning the Campaign on you Facebook, Twitter, Blog etc.
