Support this film!
You know those documentaries you see on PBS? Most cost $1 million dollars or more to complete. We work on a much leaner scale, but that still means we need $150K to finish the film.
Making a documentary is expensive, and it’s especially challenging getting funding for the 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.
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
Did you know the documentaries you see on PBS can cost over $1 million to make?
We work on a much leaner scale, but that still means we need $100-150K to finish the film. Making a documentary is expensive, and we believe in paying our professional collaborators fairly for their skills and talents.
Your support is critical for us to complete My So-Called Selfish Life because individual donations are currently our sole source of funding. 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.

How we'll use your donations:
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 Summer 2019.
Thank you very much!
