Please help us finish this film!
It may be hard to believe, but the documentaries you see in theaters and on PBS often cost $1 million dollars or more to complete. We work on a much leaner scale, but that still means we need another $75K to finish the film.
Yes, making a documentary is expensive, and it’s especially challenging to fund a film about under-reported experiences of women. Your support is critical for us to complete My So-Called Selfish Life because individual donations are currently our sole source of funding.
But, no amount is too small to make a difference! We are committed to telling your stories and creating meaningful social change through documentary film. Join our beloved supporters and help us complete My So-Called Selfish Life. It’s easy to donate:
You’ll be taken to Women Make Movies to make your donation. Tax deductions are available to U.S. taxpayers only.
Other ways to donate
How we'll use your donations:
Thanks to our 700+ supporters we raised over $50K in 2017, allowing us to spend 2018 shooting the film and starting our edit. We’ve also brought you 100+ Accomplished graphics and 24 weekly #SelfishSelfie videos.
Creating a compelling story through editing is a long but essential process in making a great documentary. Even at a non-profit rate, an editor's time and skills cost upwards of $2500/week, and a documentary edit can take 6 to 9 months to complete.
Travel and filming
It would be easier and more economical to film everything in my Brooklyn neighborhood, but that that would not make for a very interesting or diverse film! Your donation supports shoots with our far-flung and fascinating subjects in the US, UK, Israel and Canada through 2019.
Thank you very much!
