Hello, my name is Mike Park, I am a New York City based filmmaker, screening series organizer, and producer of Dancestand - a live music show.
This campaign is to raise money for an independent film screening series called New Vision. This will be the second incarnation of this series. Previously I produced New Vision from 2005 to 2011 (see a program from a 2009 screening event here, more links coming soon). We screened great independent and art films by hundreds of filmmakers. Now I would like to provide the same opportunity to a new group of filmmakers by bringing New Vision back.
My goal is to raise $17,500 to produce 24 screenings in New York over the course of 12 months. From money raised through IndieGoGo, I would be able to set up the series so that filmmakers do not have to pay a submission fee. Also I would be able to share ticket sales money with the filmmakers. My plan is to give the filmmakers 50% of the ticket sales from each screening. In addition, I will be using the raised funds to market the screenings widely so that the filmmakers can get the maximum benefit possible through New Vision.
We have some great perks outlined on the right side of the page. Contact me with any questions and suggestions regarding New Visions or this campaign. Contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your contributions will go a long way towards bringing back a screening series that is of great benefit to independent filmmakers & film lovers. Thank you!
