We've been going door to door to all of Oxford's businesses the past couple of weeks to drop sponsor forms off. We are so pumped to see early responses already! We appreciate you all!
We are seeking to raise memberships to $100,000 this year in order to cover rising costs of running a film festival including more hotels, more meals, more shuttles, more insurance, more staff. Your membership, even of $5, makes a difference to people coming to Oxford, people working in Oxford, people making films in Oxford.
We hit our first $10K in fundraising so we are launching our new female filmmaker retreat!! We are sharing with you, our supporters, first!
How does your gift help? Here is how:
We are increasing by $15,000 from previous year's sponsorships and memberships for two reasons. #1 - To help fund a year round part time job for a new employee and #2 We are raising $10,000 to make it free for female directors to attend the newly launched female filmmaker retreat for 3 days pre-fest and to stick around for the actual fest. We want to pay for their stay here including meals as well as their mentors. This is an important step forward in our vision to create more educational opportunities, support for filmmakers and support for female filmmakers.
Wanted to share with you all that we are a Top 50 Film fest Worth the Entry Fee at MovieMaker this year!
