GIMME THE LOOT will have its World Premiere at the SXSW FILM FESTIVAL in Narrative Competition quickly followed by its NY premiere at NEW DIRECTORS/NEW FILMS
When Malcolm and Sofia's latest graffiti masterpiece is buffed by a rival gang, these two determined Bronx teens must hustle, steal, and scheme to get spectacular revenge and become the biggest writers in the City. That’s the jumping off point for an exciting adventure that showcases some incredibly talented young actors in a story that's fun, thrilling, and simply a great time at the movies.
GIMME THE LOOT was shot this past summer on the streets of New York thanks to the support of countless friends, family, lovers, and Trinidadian restaurant owners. NOW WE NEED YOU. GIMME THE LOOT requires crucial funds to complete the movie (editor, sound mix, color correct, mastering, travel, publicity and marketing - phew!) and have something special to screen this Spring!
This is a passion project in every sense of the word, and the passion we all feel for this story, this setting, and these characters hopefully translates on-screen. We are honored that the IFP/Lincoln Center's EMERGING VISIONS program, SXSW, and New Directors/New Films agree and now we want you to become a part of GIMME THE LOOT!
Please check out our video above, which includes a trailer and a message from our good friends Sam and Meeko . One of them is a nice Jewish boy and the other has tattoos on his face... see if you can guess which one is which.

So what is this Kickstarter thing? Well, Kickstarter is an innovative funding platform for creative projects and it's all-or-nothing - If we don’t raise our goal of $22,500, we get nothing. Nothing! Our campaign will last just 25 days but please pledge now – it will help build momentum. Thank you!
Kickstarter is part of a movement called crowd-raising and that's because you - the crowd - are responsible for whether we make our goal or not. Therefore, stretch the impact of your contribution to the film by sharing with your friends and family. We've even created some easy posts for you (edit as you like):
