I am Helen Banks, the co-creator of the web series heb Studios and the writer and director of the short film The Pact. My latest project, Setting of The Son, a suspense drama, was accepted into the prestigious Festival de Cannes' Short Film Corner, only a few days ago and now, I need you help getting there!
Break it on Down Banks
Because I just found out about our acceptance, Festival de Cannes is right around the corner (May 15th) so that means a very little time to raise a nice chunk of money for:
- International Flight
Taking the late notice into consideration and the popularity of travel to the French city of Cannes around this time, prices are pretty expensive that is why I need to raise $4,500 to ensure the purchase of a roundtrip ticket and bordering.
Now, does your girl want to sit in French cafes, nibble on authentic baguettes while Edith Piaf plays in the background and add a nasal sound necessarily and unnecessarily to the end of all my words?
Will that happen?
Probably not...Okay maybe only once BUT rest assured your donation is truly helping my career reach higher heights by attending Cannes.
Why I Need to Be There Physically
Cannes Short Film Corner is not part of the Official Short Film Competition but what it is, is an opportunity for emerging filmmakers (such as myself) to have their projects at the Festival, meet distributors from around the world who are interested in buying short films for international markets, network with major movers and shakers in the Industry and last but not least...ACTUALLY SCREEN YOUR FILM AT CANNES!!! But...you must physically be present in order for any of the above to happen.
Won't you help this poor girl's dream come true???
You’re on the Team Now
Please help spread the word to your network of people. I need your help financially or not, by telling people. The more people who know the better the chances are that I will reach my goal. Yay! Thanks!
