New reward: Wrap Party in San Francisco!

Posted by Debbie Lum (Creator)


We have a new reward for everyone in & around San Francisco (or anyone who wants to visit):

We're going to have a Wrap Party including a private preview screening and celebration with the director, producers, crew, funders and supporters of seeking asian female. Date & Location in San Francisco TBD - but we are aiming for one evening in August or September 2012. We've added new reward levels so that you can pick up one or two tickets. And if we schedule it when you can't make it, we'll send you your choice of DVDs (details on the reward listing).

Thanks for getting us so close to our goal! We have 7 days left to reach it or we don't receive any of the pledges. Please help us by pledging and by spreading the word among your friends - like us on Facebook and Tweet about our film.

We have some big news! seeking asian female will be holding its East Coast premiere at the AFI-Discovery Channel Silverdocs film festival. Located just outside of Washington DC in Silver Spring, Maryland, the screenings will be held on Wednesday, June 20 and Thursday, June 21.
Silverdocs is the most talked about documentary festival in the United States, called “Non-Fiction Nirvana” by Variety, the “Pre-eminent documentary Festival in the US” by Screen International and the “premiere showcase for documentary film” by Hollywood Reporter. Silverdocs hosts more than 27,000 attendees from across the globe with a diverse range of films, filmmakers and film subjects representing more than 60 countries.

I will be there too. Please come and tell your friends and family in the area! You can get tickets here:

Thanks again for your support!


we forgot to tell you...

Hi all! 

It's our first Kickstarter campaign and we got so caught up in the flurry of activity between launching this and getting down to the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival, we completely forgot to say a few things:

After we launched, we very quickly started to build momentum. We were amazed at how quickly some of you jumped in to back us! Thank you! Then the good folks at Kickstarter chose us for a Staff Pick - and that was incredible! We were super grateful for the great amount of attention that gave us and we know that a great number of our backers found us through Kickstarter's "discovery" feature. Then we managed to get past 50% in just 9 days! Wow!

Now we're at the end of week two, though, and we've started to lose our momentum. As you know, we don't get any of your pledges if we don't hit our goal. So please tell your friends, post our link on your Facebook wall, tweet about the film. And if you're a blogger and want to do an interview about the film, please send us an email.

Thank you again for being part of the Kickstarter community and for your support for our film. We are very grateful for all of you!

-- Debbie & the entire SAF Team
