Worum geht es in dem Projekt?
A short film starring Franziska Junge, voiced by Eva Mattes (known from films like R.W. Fassbinder's 'The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant'), many other actors and actresses, and the Australian singer Angela Cory. Help us get to the Adelaide Film Festival AFF in Australia this October.
Was sind die Ziele und wer ist die Zielgruppe?
The Adelaide Film Festival is acclaimed world-wide as one of the most exciting festivals for new and emerging artists. The festival setting is in the city of Adelaide - which already has a connection to Germany: German Lutherans brought the first vineyards there in the 1830s! What a fabulous way to continue the connection between these two places!
This is, of course, an exciting opportunity for me as a film maker. But it is also an opportunity to showcase the work of Franziska from the theatre ‚Schauspiel Frankfurt’, or Alexander Scheer from ‚Volksbühne Berlin’ in a prestigious international setting.
Warum sollte jemand dieses Projekt unterstützen?
Lovers of German film and theatre should help us pull together enough funds to take Baby Gun to Adelaide. Eilhardt Productions will be hosting a soiree in Berlin before we leave to show case the Film in an intimate setting.
Was passiert mit dem Geld bei erfolgreicher Finanzierung?
Funds will be directed to assist in travel costs to Adelaide; We are also planning an intimate film night in Berlin to showcase the film for our German fans; We will be making limited edition copies of the film available to those who support our goal.
