Chevis does Cannes

Hello everyone reading this!

My name is Chevis LaBelle and I'm currently enrolled in the Radio, Television, and Film program at the University of Texas at Austin.

I recently applied for an internship through The Creative Mind Group for the Cannes Film Festival in France. On this beautiful day, I woke up to find an email that told me I had been accepted into the program to go to the festival May 11th through May 25th! This is an amazing opportunity and, after speaking with the program coordinator, I will be bringing several scripts with me from fellow UT students to pitch at the festival. 

The total cost of the program is high but I am working on saving money from my part-time job to afford the experience. This GoFundMe will help pay for the following:

Round Trip Plane Ticket ($1,300.00)
The Program Fee of $2,999.00 which includes
-Pre-Festival Orientation
-2HR Walking Tour of Cannes (with 26 checkpoints)
-15 nights of shared accomodations
-Official Festival de Cannes Credential
-International Cell Phone 
-Internet Access
-Round-Trip Shuttle Transportation between airport, hotel, and festival
-Exclusive workshop series with Film and TV Industry professionals 
-Short film featured on Creative Minds website 
-Invitation to Short Film Competition Showcase and After Party 
-Program Wrap Party  
-Creative Minds Staff on Call for Consultation and Troubleshooting 
-Creative Minds in Cannes Program T-Shirt
-Assistance with Post Festival Job Securing
-School Credit for Working the Internship (Pending university approval)

If you or anyone you know know would like to help sponsor a hard-working college student with big dreams, any donation would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you so much for your help and I hope you have a beautiful day!
