Financing any film production is a challenge, especially when you're trying to tell OUR stories on sovereign artistic ground. We knew in advance we would meet obstacles financing for our first feature film, Bruising for Besos. But we also believed in our vision and in the generous support of our communities.
This special list represents a small fraction of the Community Producers from our initial Indiegogo campaign effort. They remain listed here because they purchased books through Kórima Press as a way of supporting our campaign OR they answered our request to re-pledge their monies in 2013 through our film's website. They gave us the support to re-launch our efforts in 2014, which became our successful AIM/Hatchfund online campaign (Those donors are listed on our feature film's website and end credits).
Community Producers highlighted in blue pledged $25 or more and are also listed on the Bruising for Besos website. Members in green pledged $50 or more and are also be listed in the film's rolling credits. (Font increase in size in relation to donor's contribution.)
