I was fortunate enough to be one of 50 people to win the Fantastic Fest 2014 VIP badge ticket lottery, but unfortunately do not have the current funds to afford the badge (valued at $409)!
I'm not starting this gofundme with the high expectations of actually reaching my goal, but if Zach Braff can have a kickstarter, I couldn't possibly be a bigger asshole than him for starting mine.
I'm still pretty new to the Fantastic Fest scene, but the past two years that I have gone, I have absolutely made sure to make the most of it.
At last year's Fantastic Fest, I was one of the only girls to get a free prison haircut and shave their head at the Red Dawn closing party.
This year I actually WON my Superfan badge by participating in and winning the "You're Next" obstacle course
, against 4 boys at that!
This year was a true test to my dedication to the festival, as I worked my day job every day of the festival from 7am-2pm (after getting home each night around 2am), so I could have the rest of the day free to see as many films as possible, which rounded out to more than 20 films!
I want to continue in the tradition and spirit of everything that Fantastic Fest has to offer, but will very likely be unable to do so without a little help from my friends. As some of you may know this year has been a little bit rough for me up until currently, so my current financial situation isn't exactly the most ideal.
I'm setting up donations with rewards that will test my film watching limits once more. Donate $10 (the typical cost of a movie ticket these days) and you get to watch any (1) horror/genre film of your choice with me! Donate $25 and we'll make it a double feature, I'll even supply the popcorn! Donate $50 and you and I will spend a full 12 hours watching the horror and genre films of your choice!
Thanks in advance to anyone who actually donates to this, again I'm not expecting much (or anything for that matter, but it doesn't hurt to try), but anything is appreciated!
