Kitsong was founded as a high school to offer quality education which is accessible to anyone. The Kitsong drama and film department has shown massive growth since its inception in 2015 and we have been invited to showcase our student film “I have something to tell you” at the 7th Annual BlackStar Film Festival in Philadelphia, PA.
An opportunity of this magnitude is a game changer not just for the school but most importantly for the children of Kitsong. This would serve as a great learning and growing opportunity which could ripple into something greater and life changing for our students.
We are looking to raise the money in order to get all 10 of our students and the teacher who were involved in the making of the film to the festival. The 11 participants would have a one week stay in the United States (31st July - 7th August 2018) where all of the students involved in the creation of the film would attend the 7th Annual BlackStar Film Festival taking place August 2-5, 2018 . The BlackStar Film Festival is an annual celebration of the visual and storytelling traditions of the African diaspora and of global indigenous communities, showcasing films by black people from around the world. The students would also travel to neighbouring states such as New York City and Washington DC which are a 2 hour bus ride away.
We are so grateful for taking the time to help us. In appreciation of your sponsorship, Kitsong would like to offer to put your logo in the credits in recognition of your gift. We hope you’re able to contribute, and we appreciate your support and involvement in enriching the education of our students.
