Goings on and fundraising madness
The countdown is on as we head toward MWFF 2019 and there's so much to do! One thing we're working on is a fundraising project with Australian Cultural Fund to raise $5000 to help pay for some pretty cool events for next year.
As a young not-for-profit festival, it takes a bit of juggling the finances to bring the festival to life. While we are a volunteer lead and run organisation, we would put any generous donation to good use in paying for screening fees, exhibition spaces, catering, and insurances. As we are all about supporting the community of women screen practitioners, we would also like to put any monies towards subsidising our visiting filmmakers, especially those travelling with their films from interstate. This is in the form travel and accommodation for festival guests and offering complimentary festival passes to all the filmmakers we’re screening. After all, we’re doing this for them!
That's why we've set up this blog to keep all our wonderful supporters in the know about the program, filmmakers and events we're working to make MWFF 2019 the best women's film festival yet! In the meantime, you can see all the details of our ACF project on their website, get a sneak peek at some of the things we're planning and, of course, donate!
Stay tuned for more updates coming soon...
