2018 FILMMAKER HOSPITALITY FUND

We are privileged to welcome directors, producers, writers, subjects, and actors from all over the globe to Seattle to converge for a weeklong celebration of Queer cinema. An important venue in the Seattle film scene—and the social event of the season—the festival provides unique opportunities for visiting and local filmmakers to engage and entertain over 10,000 attendees. This year, we need your help funding travel expenses for filmmakers for the 23rd TWIST: Seattle Queer Film Festival. Our goal is to raise at least $2,500 to supplement our Filmmaker Hospitality Fund to assist in covering airfare, lodging, transportation, and meals.

GIVING BENEFITS

Give as much or as little as you can, every donation helps to get us to the goal! Do you have airline miles, hotel points, or similar types of rewards you'd like to donate? We will work with you to get that started, contact development@threedollarbillcinema.org.
