Do You Want a 2014 Festival?

Some Broads share a smile in the Festival Lounge
The Broad Humor Film Festival is at a crossroads and we need to decide if we move forward.  The Bank of  Susan can no longer carry the cost of Broad Humor alone so we are reaching out to you, the women who've had films and screenplays recognized here.  You are the ones who know the value of the festival and can best say if it's special enough to put in the time and money to keep it alive. 

By "say" we mean contribute funds to the cause.  The festival needs $5000 if there's going to be a 2014 event.  With about 50 women participating each year over 8 years, that adds up to about 400 Broads.  $12.50 from each of you would do it.  Realistically, only half of you may be able to help so that means $25 per Broad to keep the doors open and the lights on.

And that's the real question. Is it worth $25 to you to have Broad Humor continue?  You might want to donate to pay forward your experience.  You might want to donate to keep the prestige of the festival growing so that your participation means more.  You might donate because you like knowing there's a place to screen your comedic work and keep your filmmaker presence active on IMDB.  Whatever your reasons, are they strong enough to be worth a $25 contribution?  Or will you take on the role of Angel Broad and contribute more?

Your answer might be "no," and that's okay.  There is no debt you owe us.  However, a 9th Annual Broad Humor Film Festival will only happen if you make it possible.

We're looking at a two-week Kickstarter campaign in November.  Check back in a week or so for an update.
