Have a question?
I don't understand what happened. Why was funding canceled? What does this mean?
Regarding your friend's quote, I'm not sure what he's referring to...us or the other festivals. However, this is easy to explain. 99% of festivals do not share revenue with filmmakers nor focus on quality exhibition. They exist to pay the salaries of their board members and directors. What makes us different from other festivals is our commitment to splitting the box office with filmmakers, providing them with travel expenses, hotel rooms and meals. Our dedication to quality exhibition is the final major distinction.
Thanks for the comment! My email is email@example.com. It's on the NMIFF website, but I agree we should add it to the facebook page.
Please have a link somewhere on your websites or FB accounts where people may contact you directly. For now, I have someone who would like to donate, but has a question. His partial quote: "...but I have been unable to find out what they mean by "this kind of festival."
Make this work! I am convinced it would be good for a lot of people if it does.
I would very much like to see this model succeed. And I know others do as well.
