Phoebe set to go to LA!
Press Release from Orchids
Well, our ongoing campaign has allowed Phoebe to buy a ticket to travel. However, we are still short of our target funding level to get Phoebe to the USA to present Orchids at an American festival. She still needs a roof over her head and food in her stomach while she is away.
We want to send Phoebe to travel to world class festivals and conferences in the USA in July of 2011 and represent the film in person!
At present, there are no federal or state government travel grants available. 🙁
Now more than ever, we need your help. A donation no matter how big or small will help Phoebe to travel to screen Orchids at Outfest in Los Angeles, which is one of the world's biggest and longest running LGBT film festivals.
Donations can be made via the Australia Arts Business Foundation (AbaF) website. This means you will receive a tax deductible reciept for your donation!
Donations are paid in full to the artist as a grant. A total of more than $7 million has been donated to the arts through AbaF. International donors may also donate via the AbaF but no tax deductible receipt will be available.
Remember, our 'best' donors will receive a prize pack containing signed DVD, poster and postcards of Orchids: My Intersex Adventure.
