Visions4 AnnouncesIndiegogo Fundraising Campaign
Visions4 is providing the opportunity for further support by extending its 2013-2014 fundraising campaign to the general public. Contributions to the event’s Indiegogo campaign will support undergraduate filmmakers and film scholars on the regional, national, and international level, by allow Visions to bring 10-15 young, creative minds to the University of North Carolina Wilmington campus to present their student work in a professional setting, where they can network with other film students and receive feedback in a public arena.
Visions is calling on YOU to donate funds towards our goal of $2750 before December 8th.
During its first three years, Visions provided travel assistance to 34 undergraduate film students from around the world. These students were able to share innovative and diverse perspectives by screening their films and presenting scholarly talks about film history and theory. They also participated in discussion panels, filmmaking workshops, and networked with the UNCW filmmaking community as well as the general student body. Visions has been described as an educational, challenging, exciting, and life changing applied learning experience.
"VISIONS was undoubtedly my favorite film festival experience! Everyone at UNCW was so welcoming and friendly. It was incredibly difficult to leave after the festival was over. I was so honored that the organizers were able to provide a travel grant for my attendance-- otherwise, I would have missed out on a really wonderful learning opportunity.” – Shreyasi Das, Visions Animation Award Winner 2012, Rochester Institute of Technology
Due to its nurturing yet challenging atmosphere, Visions has experienced a steady progression in terms of innovation, participation, and reputation among the international film community.
“I was greatly impressed by the students' professionalism and enthusiasm. There is no doubt that Visions is growing into something great!” – Gina Papabeis, Associate Producer of the Oscar winning documentary, The Cove
To continue this trend of success, we need your help to ensure that Visions4 maintains the ability to provide travel assistance to its official selection presenters.
In exchange for your support, contributors will receive a wide range of perks based on their level of donation--the greater the contribution, the greater the reward!
