It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Also, the busiest? My brain is slightly exploding from the myriad threads in the news about TIME’s Person of the Year, the Documentary shortlist for the 90th Academy Awards, critic’s end-of-year lists, and I’m sure you can add other head-exploding news to this list. So take it easy, be good to yourself and be good to those around you, so we can truly enjoy the wonderful times of the season!
One way to be good to those around you and feel the positive feedback is to support the campaigns crowdfunding this week. Give generously so each filmmaker will end the year with good vibes and a way to push her project to the finish line! There are many ways to give: Select a reward level, share a re-tweet, or “like” and comment a word of encouragement. Happy holidays!
Reminder: All of the projects listed below have female directors at the helm OR they are projects that benefit women directors (e.g., film festivals, funds, etc). The campaigns at the top of the list are the ones ending soonest, so get in there and support ASAP (with $$ or an RT on Twitter). Click the titles to go directly to each project’s crowdfunding page, those in italics are new additions this week.
