Sound Unseen Kickstarter Campaign

07 May 2011 | Categories: News / Press | Posted by: Josh Leibold

Sound Unseen International Duluth intends to raise funds to help execute our second annual festival in Duluth, MN.

We’ve got a great predominately volunteer/professional staff who will be bringing in another outstanding line-up of films, music and art for year two.  Like any endeavor of this magnitude, we survive on a shoestring budget and just need a small amount to cover the costs of flights for our special guests.  We get tremendous support from the hospitality industry in Duluth with a generous list of donated hotel rooms and venues, but as we like to say–we cannot buy plane tickets with hotel rooms and we need some cash to purchase flights.

Our first festival in Duluth was a great critical success because we brought in tremendous Directors, Producers, Distributors, Musicians and Special Industry professionals.  Our guests list includes the following in year one alone:

Minnesota Filmmakers/Artists

Philip Harder-Low Movie
