Risks and challenges:
This movie will be finished. It will be released as direct video on demand online, on Vimeo or WendyDent.com. With the stretch goal hit, it WILL BE SUBMITTED TO FESTIVALS. The challenge is getting it selected. That’s where the more the funding, the more we can market it and get attention for this important movie.
The obstacle to getting this film entered into major festivals is just not having the financial support to cover all the costs and complete the final ‘lock off’ to get this important film out to the world. The story is there, the sources are there, and your help will give the extra push needed to get this movie released.
