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.

No amount is too small to make a difference! 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. Scroll to the very bottom of the ‘sponsored projects’ page to find our film. Tax deductions are available to U.S. taxpayers

 

Become one of our beloved supporters through PayPal. This method is not tax deductible

Did you know the documentaries you see on PBS cost over $1 million…

You know those documentaries you see on PBS? They cost at least $1 million dollars to make–or more. 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 weekly #SelfishSelfie videos.

We are committed to telling your stories and creating meaningful social change through documentary film. Why not become part of our our fabulous community and get your name on our Supporters Page? You’ll help us get us to the finish line–and no amount is too small.


How we'll use your donations:

Editing  

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 Spring 2019.

Thank you very much!
Therese & Team Selfish
