    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.



    'Goldfish’ is a short film currently seeking funding. It is an absurd affirmation of life, friends and female independence, whirled together with emotions and drug-induced surrealisms.

    The production is scheduled to shoot 11-17th December 2017.
    The project is a part of the ‘We’re Making a Film’ Picture House and Production Company, written and directed by its founder, Ksenia Kulakova.

    We are looking to source a budget of £2000.

    ‘Goldfish’ follows Aggie, a lively and charismatic British student. The film focuses on the events of one Autumn-Winter evening at the end of term. She’s set her mind on telling the girl of her affections, Jamie, how she feels and with the support of her best friend, Max, she dives headfirst into confronting her emotions at the party.
    As she enters, her confidence grows; she’s surrounded by friends and the buzz of the MDMA she’s taken assures her that she’s in for a good night. A soup of ensemble movement, friendly chatter with her friend, Guy, among others fill the party. Suddenly the energy is lost and her happy demeanor crumbles – she sees Jamie kissing Nina. An uncomfortable conversation between the three girls reveals that the Nina is Jamie’s new girlfriend and Aggie is launched into a nauseous blur, half drug-induced, half induced by overwhelming emotions.
    She escapes to the bathroom where she vomits; when Aggie recovers, she returns to the party but spying Jamie and Nina’s unnecessarily public displays of affection (tonsil-tennis), she leaves, walking down the street with tear-filled eyes. The mood changes when she sees a poster of a missing goldfish who speaks to her and she decides to fill herself with power. She dances home alone, genuinely happy.

    This film aims to be a breath of fresh air in an industry where female and queer perspectives are often overlooked. Supporting this type of innovative cinema is hugely important so we'd be grateful to any donations you can offer. To show our gratitude, any donor giving more than £20 will have their name in the credits of the completed film as one of our valued supporters. WMAF aims to take this film to various festivals in the hope of giving exposure to queer and feminist cinema.
