Making a difference takes love. The raw kind that builds character and family. In this case, we’re building a film family. Or to be clear: a film festival. Many of our community members that have returned as Patrons to Ninja-Con love film, and some are even film makers, screenwriters, and actors. Aficionados may seem easy to come by, as everyone jumps for the next Avengers movie, no matter how dissatisfied they say they are of the quality of expectations. But the independent film scene is too different from the 3D animated glitz and glam of Hollywood’s obese wallet. The independent will make films even on a shoe string budget, and put their heart and soul into it. They may never make profit, or break even at all, but they surely will find the funds to make another one. The problem that stems from this is how long can they keep it up until they exhaust their livelihood. They’re artists with barely an audience returning for more.
And this is where we come in. As a foundation, we have the resources to connect with producers and sponsors. We know how to organize festivals, produce theatrical concerts, but the last quark that’s missing is real patronage. Your patronage. By supporting the FanFilm Awards, you’re not only funding the festival, but you’re backing the true importance in your community. It’s not that these events were ever made to be pretty to look at and show off to friends, but that it brings a quality of life we, as a society, should be enjoying. How much does it make you happy? Film makes people happy, and if you love film, as the cultural experience that we love too, then please join us. Become a Patron, and help us help film makers to make more films. Donate today and immerse yourself in the culture we’ve cultivated as a community, as a society, and the generation that embraced the silver screen that we know now.
