WELCOME TO OUR CROWDFUNDER

IMG_2437.JPG

In 2023 I took a massive risk and quit my job to go back to my home country of Peru for 3 months and make a short film which has been a passion project of mine for 5+ years. It was my biggest production yet, involving a big team of talented crew from Peru, shooting for very long days in the hot desert. We had to pull in every favour we could, work tirelessly and get people to truly believe in the project in order to make our very limited budget stretch enough to be able to complete this ambitious project.

Now we are close to finishing the film's edit, but we have run out of money and are already in some pretty serious debt. I ask my community of friends, fellow filmmakers, or simply fellow dreamers, for your help in allowing us to complete this film and distribute it at film festivals around the world.

SYNOPSIS

Two 14-year old boys find a map for what they believe to be a treasure hidden in the desert behind their beach complex. Against the warnings of the beach's mysterious guardian, they set out to find the treasure in an adventure that will change their young lives forever.

THE GOAL

Our goal to reach £1000 is for us to be able to send the film to some of the world's biggest festivals, in USA, UK, France, Spain, Canada, Argentina, and many more countries. Getting into film festivals is notoriously hard, as its extremely competitive, and its also expensive, as every festival charges a submission fee. For short films, the only way to get your film seen around the world, noticed by producers, directors, and industry people, and give you a chance to make a name for yourself and climb further up the ladder, is by showing your short at festivals (the bigger, the better!).

With this film, we set out to make something good enough to compete with some of the world's elite festivals. You might have heard of Sundance, Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Sitges, Mar del Plata Film Festival, or even Cannes. These are the level of festivals we are gunning for. The biggest platforms for independent films, a place where Peruvian films are very RARELY represented. But we want this to change and help put Peruvian film on the map, further pushing the new wave of filmmakers coming out of Peru with a real desire to make world class cinema, but with limited financial opportunities to do so.

With a budget of £1000, we can send the film to around 75 film festivals, of a variety of different sizes, with a focus on the upper-tier level festival. With an average acceptance rate (for GOOD films) being around 10-15%, we are looking to get selected to at least 10 festivals, which would be enough to potentially change the trajectory of many of our careers, as well as have an impact in the Peruvian film industry.
