Help “Pariah” Get To Sundance!

Dee Rees‘ feature film debut, Pariah, makes its worldwide debut at the Sundance Film Festival next month. Now that the film is Sundance (the premiere film festival in these United States), the work has just begun.

Every filmmaker's dream is that Sundance means smooth sailing from thereon. Its debut will make a splash, then it will get picked up for distribution after a big multimillion advance has been paid to the filmmaker, it will open on 3000 screens next year (or even in the top 25 markets), it win lots of acclaim. do well at the box office, and the filmmaker will sign a 3-picture deal with Sony Pictures worth millions. Not to mention the extra 50% of revenues which will come from international sales - chances are the filmmaker knows less than nothing about that part of the business.

With some alterations of the Shadow and Act posting, this is the real story:

The film has to first get through the circus that is Sundance; and to do that, and do it well, money will have to be spent! And that’s were YOU come in. Dee has set up a Kickstarter page to raise $10,000 which will go towards the film’s premiere at Sundance. The money will go towards the following: Paying for music clearances, a sound mix, and air and hotel to bring the film’s fabulous, hardworking cast and crew to the festival – all in an effort to help ensure that there’s a continuous awareness of the film, which will only help with distribution. So, if you can contribute to Dee’s cause, please do so. At the time of this post, they’ve raised $435, with 27 days left to go. CLICK HERE to be taken to the film’s Kickstarter page, and give whatever you can.

Cinetic is their producers rep and Craig Banky is the publicist.
