That’s right. As an official backer of the 2011 festival, you’re part of the action. One of the VIPs who makes it all happen.
It’s pretty simple, really. You back the festival, and in addition to our unending gratitude, we’ll gift you with all kinds of festival deals. With the dollars we raise, we can allocate much-needed resources to host workshops, program special events and bring in filmmakers from all over to create the one-of-a-kind experiences we’re known to provide for film lovers all over the region. Dollar for dollar, here are some examples of how we put your backing to good use:
what you give: $10
where it goes: To covering an hour of a professional projectionist’s expertise, ensuring that every festival film screens masterfully.
what you give: $25
where it goes: To cover one summer month's utility bill at the Festival offices, in order to keep us working on the nitty-gritty details.
what you give: $50
where it goes: To the daily rental fee for an HDCam deck, so we can screen the best independent films around on the best format in the industry.
what you give: $100
where it goes: To our estimated theater rental costs for a single screening. And we have a lot of those.
what you give: $250
where it goes: To secure special (read: experienced) guests and presentation materials for a filmmaking panel. We’d like to have as many as 10 different panels to offer you this year. All free and open to the public.
And there you have it - your backing, accounted for. Thanks for making it all happen.
