Update #14

Time to Rally the Troops

Comment

We are so grateful that 54 Backers have worked together to raise $1700 to date, to support our festival, which is 100% supported by in-kind and individual donations. These donations cover the fees we pay to show films in the space, and costs of building out the kino space.

Unfortunately we get $0 if we don't meet our full funding goal. So we're working hard to raise $800 in 3 days, with a funding deadline of 4pm CT on Sunday, March 25.

To help us get the rest of the way there, we've added a number of limited edition, get them while they last, Backer Rewards, from kino objects, to original art, a press release consultation (perfect for local arts or activist groups), treats from Early to Bed, a 1-year subscription to POETRY magazine, a private Pilates session in your home, and more! Limited Edition Backer Rewards start at just $10!

Please consider sharing Dance Films Kino's Kickstarter link with others to help us meet our goal! http://kck.st/wzRvl8 

Thank you again for your support!
