Stand up for Women with R.V

WHAT

The clock is ticking on Women's Reproductive Rights.  Judge Kavanaugh, an individual who's record and judicial philosophy demonstrate a clear hostility towards reproductive rights, was confirmed. The Ohio House passed a bill restricting abortions after 6 weeks AND is trying to CRIMINALIZE the procedure. There is no clause for incest nor rape. Women & their doctors could face life-imprisonment in the event this bill is passed. 7 States have ONE SINGLE CLINIC (in the entire state) providing care.

WHY

As artists and citizens of the United States of America we feel it is our duty to make a positive contribution to our country & our world. We made R.V to take a stand & to give voice to women across the country who do not have access to a safe, legal abortion. Here's our trailer:


HOW

We will be launching R.V on social media platforms to spread this urgent message far and wide. Help us share R.V with the world! 

YOUR CONTRIBUTION

The preliminary funds that we've raised have gone to production costs & film festival submissions. As a result we have screened to much acclaim:

        ARULA Short Film Festival (we helped raise several THOUSAND dollars for Planned Parenthood!)
        Dances with Films Festival
        Unreasonable Shorts
        Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema (WINNER Best Makeup/FX; NOMINATION Best Actress,
        NOMINATION Best
        Short Film)
        Chain NYC Film Festival (WINNER Best Actress)
        Sidewalk Film Festival

In order to have the greatest reach, we need your support. Your contributions will go DIRECTLY to PR & marketing costs:

FACEBOOK ADS - $1500

Targeting the broadest audience costs money! We are lucky to have Matthew Diamante from Foxley Digital working behind the scenes to ensure R.V gets seen. We are even luckier to have one of MARK ZUCKERBERG'S right-hand-men working in tandem with our efforts thanks to one of our GENEROUS supporters!!

PR OUTREACH - $2250

PR whiz Heather Burgett  has agreed to support us for HALF of what she normally charges. Why? Because she feels so passionately about R.V and about the cause.
