Kush Films Pioneering Online Cinema For Black Film

KUSH ONLINE VOD CINEMA:

Hello community builders, philanthropists, friends, colleagues, supporters & film fans!

My name is Marlon Palmer, I am fairly well-known in the film industry; my company Kush Films and I truly need your support along with all kind-hearted donators and philanthropist to help us meet a big challenge and raise £10,000 ; this money will help us help move forward after the Covid pandemic and embrace the new digital age. We especially need your help to help us carry on our 23 year legacy work supporting black filmmakers where once again we intend to be pioneers and create the UK's first virtual VOD platform that will showcase the best in independent black films and help filmmakers monitise their content and get paid and the platform will also be a unique archive detailing the history of UK black films revered by the wider black community (different to the mainstream gaze dictating the reverence of particular black films not always in agreeable with the black community). 

The idea for Kush Cinema was also borne during the pandemic lockdown, the murder of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter uprising; highlighting a need for self-determination and independence and new opportunities to generate wealth that support the well-being and development of the black community and important creatives from that community telling black cultural stories. 

Kush Cinema will be unique and very important in the UK!

The site is currently being built by international web developers www.i2ic.com who was sympathetic to the recent Black Lives Matters struggle and my personal request for support. 

 

All of the funds that you donate to this cause will go towards building Kush Online Cinema!

We need to raise a lot more money for the ongoing development & marketing of the platform but the £10k will go towards the initial build costs. 

and as they say; To walk a thousand miles; one first has to take the first step! 
Help us take those steps forward and make a difference .

This brand new state of the art online VOD cinema (similar to www.curzonhomecinema.com) -  customers will be able to pay a one-off transactional fee to watch new, old, classic films from the UK, Caribbean, Africa and around the world. There will also be an option to become a monthly subscriber and watch a back catalogue of films; we also plan to have free content and educational how-to guidance and training videos for young filmmakers, actors, writers etc.

 

Creating Jobs:

Once the site is launched we plan to work with young filmmakers/content creators and develop our own original content enabling them to monetize the content developed, we also plan to provide employment opportunities for mature industry talent often these days forgotten about but still relevant and important in our eyes. 

DONATE NOW!

WE NEED YOU TO HELP PUSH US FORWARD TOWARDS OUR TARGET £10k GOAL BY MAKING A DONATION TODAY- everything little or small we receive will also help drive momentum and encourage many others to also give and help us realise a new future for the exhibition, distribution and production of diverse content with a special focus on rich cultural stories of the black experience via the much-needed future-proof virtual cinema platform that we will build - we're sure you will appreciate and love it. 

 

Giving Back:

We want to give back for all the support we get; and will be giving away:
