We recently raised over $500 on Kickstarter which will allow us to enter Polypore into Sundance, Cannes, Venice, Tribeca, Berlin, SXSW, Toronto, Chicago, The LA Film Festival and The NY Film Festival.

Now we'd like to enter ten more top festivals.

Every $50 donation will allow us to enter Polypore into one additional film festival.  Our goal is $500 (10 festivals).

Polypore is a feature length motion picture by Films Royale, an independent production company comprised of young filmmakers from New England.

Through networking and ingenuity, Films Royale is producing this ambitious project across the entire planet with the collaboration of international colleagues, in such notable locations as  Manhattan, Tokyo, Paris, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Boston and Hong Kong.

Polypore is written, directed and produced by Jesse Barack, whose awards include "Best Student Film" at the 2005 Northampton Independent Film Festival and "Best Overall" at the 2009 UVC-TV 19 Film Festival. His work has also been featured at the 2005 New York International Independent Film & Video Festival, the 2009 Philadelphia Independent Film Festival and SHORTSNONSTOP, an initiative of the Canadian Film Centre's 2010 Worldwide Short Film Festival.

Polypore has been awarded a grant by the Arts Council at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and is sponsored by the UMass Independent Film Production Club.

The motion picture also features cameo appearances by director Lloyd Kaufman of Troma Entertainment, as well as Rika Muranaka, composer for the Metal Gear Solid series.
