The movie, The Girlfriend, co-starring Jackson Rathbone is reaching out for help. The other day we mentioned how most indie films struggle for funding and hope for a distributor to pick them up. Recently, Peter Facinelli made a pitch for a friend’s film. Here is what the creative team behind The Girlfriend is doing according to their indiegogo site:
Girlfriend recently premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and garnered audience and critical acclaim. This groundbreaking film was directed by talented first timer Justin Lerner and stars Amanda Plummer (Pulp Fiction), Shannon Woodward (“Raising Hope”), Jackson Rathbone (The Twilight Saga, Last Airbender), and newcomer Evan Sneider, who delivers an unforgettable powerful performance.
We want to deliver Girlfriend to you as soon as possible. Our goal is to get it out in as many theatres as we can.
What we need:
We are looking to raise funds to pay for the marketing and promotion of the film. If we are able to raise enough, we will be able to bring the film to more cities than in our initial release.
*Once Girlfriend is released a percentage of the profits will be donated to the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS).”
After this initial pitch there are a variety of ways you can donate and different levels of donation can get you everything from autographs to costumes the actors wore.
