Good Dog! Intl Film Festival: an event that can screen in Sydney and tour around Australia to cities and remote regions

iCrowdNewswire - Jan 7, 2016

 

 (example only)

The festival aims to:
(a) support writers and film makers by providing a platform for them to be noticed;
(b) provide a family friendly event where people can bring a picnic and their dog and watch films featuring dogs;
(c) donate profits to dog charities – we’ve donated $13,000+ in the past.

Our Facebook page has 104,000 + followers. Our website is at http://gooddogff.com

Your support will help us create an event that can screen in Sydney and tour around Australia to cities and remote regions.

The festival has been described by US MovieMaker magazine as one of the ’10 ten coolest film festivals’ in the World (out of the box category) and film festival director Anny Slater has excellent credentials  http://slaterslawyers.com/pdf/Anny_Slater_artistic…

Some of the previous comments about the festival include:

“The festival was a brilliant idea and Molly and I commend you for the huge effort and imagination that it took to get it realised. We have no doubt it will grow year by year just like Glastonbury, Cannes, Sundance. Thanks a lot.”

“Thank you for hosting such a wonderful event and for taking the initiative to even start it. It was great family night out for us and we can’t wait for next year’s festival! Thanks again!”

“What a great night! Thank you so much to everyone who organized this event!! Brilliant idea!”

“Really amazing, thank you so much, my husband and friends loved it as well. Great idea and hope you organize this again next year” “Thanks again & what a great cause as well!”

“Thank you for such a great weekend! … The dogs were adorable and my friends said they’re going to bring more of their four legged friends next year.”

“I wanted to congratulate you on a fantastic festival opening night on Friday! I really enjoyed the ukulele band with the dog themed songs, red carpet for dogs and the program of films on the night that made us laugh and cry at times. As a community development worker your “plus one” message really struck a chord with me….”

“Congratulations again on the International Good Dog Film Festival… I look forward to seeing it grow!”

“We went this evening and it was fab. Thanks to everyone who organises this Film Festival. A great evening out, and dogs get to go too!” “… I so enjoyed this we may return on Sunday night”

Challenges

As this is an outdoor event, one of the obvious issues is weather. However, the screen hire company allows a rain day option. The other issue is security. Raising money via Pozible means that we can put on a professional event and encourage more volunteers to parole the area and ensure that people and their dogs behave well. We have not had any issues in the past. The other issue is to raising enough money for publicity to get the word out.
