Cinema Systers Film Festival

$2,491 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 2 months
Created February 6, 2018
In the previous two years, women from as far away as Australia, Denmark, Canada, California, Florida, Georgia, and many more U.S. states have joined other women in western Kentucky for the ONLY LESBIAN FILM FESTIVAL in the United States. 

Memorial Day Weekend (May 25-27, 2018) will be our third festival.  We're working diligently to make sure the screenings, opening night reception, “Artist Meets Audience” Filmmaker Q & A, live music, Saturday dance party, and Sunday brunch are opportunities for connection, community, learning, and a good time!

This takes a lot of work and a lot of money, though. So far, most of the financing has come from Resin Rebel, the Cinema Systers Film Festival founder and organizer, who attended the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival and took their advice to "plant acorns" in our own communities.

So if lesbian community, or film festivals, or lesbian-produced films are something you care about and want to contribue to, your support will make sure Resin Rebel can keep this film festival going. If you can purchase tickets in advance, GREAT!, we'll see you there:  https://www.cinemasysters.com. And if you can contribute to our GoFundMe campaign, you'll be our super shero!

PS:  All funds raised will go to Cinema Systers Film Festival.

An update from Resin Rebel:

Dear Friends,

The third Cinema Systers Film Festival is just three months away! We hope you’ll join us May 25-27 in Paducah, KY for films, art, workshops, music, dancing, meals, and, most importantly, community.

We’re excited to convene 240+ women and friends over Memorial Day Weekend 2018, as we are doubling our screenings. Each film will screen twice, which will double the number of women who can attend! Films start at 6pm on Friday this year!

Also, this year we are adding a bonus to our valued 'All Access' Weekend Pass holders. A two day hands-on filmmaking workshop "The Art of the Filmmaker” by B. Danielle Watkins, is FREE to our Pass holders. Plan to come into town a day early to participate in this workshop which will run Thursday (May 24th) 4pm-10pm and Friday ( May 25th) 10am-4pm. You must sign up! See details here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-art-of-the-filmmaker-workshop-tickets-43458510575?aff=ehomesaved We are constantly updating the website with exciting news and announcements, so stay tuned!

As planning progresses, we need a little help from our friends, too. If you can support us in any of the ways here, it will help more women learn about the film festival and sustain this event. Please consider:
