The festival is in it's 9th year and takes place in Venice, Ca on September 5, 6 & 7. As a finalist I get a complimentary festival pass but I need money for airfare, hotel, cabs... Airfare is $500 round trip, hotel for 4 or 5 nights (not sure yet) is approx. $700. It's not worth renting a car but I'll need cab fare. I guess I need to eat... So I'm thinking $1600.
By going to the film festival I have the opportunity to network with filmmakers and possibly...hopefully, agents and/or managers. Also, on Sunday, there will be a table reading of scenes from the top ten screenplays, but you have to attend to have your scene read.
I do feel awkward asking for people's help, but I'm also less than a year from hitting a milestone birthday which is putting me into a, "I'd better do things while I can" panic.
Thank you so much for your support. Any amount donated is greatly appreciated!
