About this project
Sound Unseen International Duluth intends to raise funds to help execute our second annual festival in Duluth, MN.
Our incredibly talented staff, in which most are predominantly volunteers, are looking forward to presenting another outstanding line-up of films, music and art for year two. Like any endeavor of this magnitude, we survive on a shoestring budget and just need a small amount to cover the costs of flights for our special guests. We get tremendous support from the hospitality industry in Duluth with a generous list of donated hotel rooms and venues, but as we like to say--we cannot buy plane tickets with hotel rooms and we need some cash to purchase flights.
Our first festival in Duluth was a great critical success because we brought in tremendous Directors, Producers, Distributors, Musicians and Special Industry professionals. Our guests list includes the following in year one alone:
Philip Harder-Low Movie
Steve Holmgren-Putty Hill/Hamilton
Don McGlynn-Rejoice and Shout
Low(Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker)
