The Revere International Student Film Festival

The Revere International "Undergraduate Student" Film Festival is a reinvention of a non-profit 501(c)3 organization called The Great American Film Project (TGAFP) that I founded in 2003 while I was a film student at the University of Texas at Austin.  Through TGAFP I presented three successful annual international undergraduate student film festivals at UT.  It was designed as an educational tool for student filmmakers from across the world to learn through observing films produced by their real-world competition.
 
Additionally, it was an opportunity for student filmmakers to showcase their work, and to be awarded cash and prizes. The goal then, and now is to educate, explore, interact, and entertain! Through TGAFP we featured student films from the United States, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Spain, and the United Kingdom. I was also able to create college credit student internships at The University of Texas.
 
The new Revere International Film Festival is now designed to be a perpetual traveling festival.  Each year we will feature student films during the fall, spring, and summer semesters at many different universities across the United States, and eventually the world.
 
Now, I’m asking you to help fund kicking off this reinvention by contributing to the cost of building the new website so that I can launch the “Call for Entries” for the first new fest in November 2019 here in Austin.  Through the “Call for Entries” I can reach student filmmakers at over 608 film schools from across the world so that they can submit their films for consideration into the festival.  Additionally, it will help me with resources that will move the project forward into 2020 and beyond, and achieve my concept of the “Perpetual Festival.”
 
Thank you for taking the time to learn about my project, and I hope that you will be able to help in whatever capacity you can!   Financial donations start at $5 with gofundme, but sharing, supporting, and taking an interest means just as much to me...  Take a look at the 2019 festival promo video below, and check out the new festival Facebook page at   https://www.facebook.com/KeepAustinRevered/?modal=admin_todo_tour  and be sure to like and follow...  Whether you can or cannot help with a donation it'd be a great gesture if you would click on the "share" icon at the top of this page and help spread the word to some of your FB friends who may have an appreciation for the arts and might be interested.  I appreciate you even taking the time to take a look at this campaign, and every effort, no matter how big or small, counts!  Please let me know if you have any questions, would like to learn more, or have any good advice.
