We are looking to get a new office in 2018! We hope to sign a lease and get a small office/meeting space for us and local filmmakers! We are hoping to raise at least 10k by November 30 2017. Any funds beyond 10k will either go to a bigger space or to building more filmmaker programs for 2018.
Thank you for any amount you can donate!
We are looking to improve the economic status of Seattle's film community. We want to improve the job quality coming to Seattle and incentivise our local business neighbors to welcome better paying jobs for our local filmmakers.
Since our inception in 2015 Ardor Creative Media has screened over 100 local shorts (and counting) to local audiences through our Cine City Program at Naked City Brewery. This not only screened shorts to new audiences through a more accessible venue, but offered cheaper ticket prices ($8pp for an hour worth of [6-8] shorts), it allows creatives to interact with one another on a more intimate level, and encourages economic growth of the Brewery by increasing food and beverage sales.
In 2017 we began screening locally made children's shorts free of charge to get kids involved in the local community at Seattle ReCreative (a not for profit reuse art store) during 2nd Fridays Art Walk. Not only does this program expose children and adults to films geared towards a younger generation it increased foot traffic in the store. Sales had increased and more families learned about the art programs and camps they offer.
We also sponsored a bus to rally for the film incentive in Olympia, Wa. The bus was a complimentary round trip for all those going to the rally!
Finally we help fiscally sponsor local films, with inkind donations of food items. Some of our sponsors include Dominoes, Ivar's, Grocery Outlet, Fred Meyer.
