Distilling Dreams

A Documentary Film

City of Austin Community Initiatives Grant - Seeking Matching Funds

SUPPORT LOCAL FILMMAKING

I have applied to the City of Austin Community Initiatives Grant to hold a free public screening of clips and outtakes from the film on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at Still Austin Whiskey Company.

There will be about a 10 min long video presentation featuring footage from the first 3 years of filming, highlighting the city of Austin and interviews about the community support the distillery founders have received.  There will also be a Q&A to talk about the film project, and what it is like to make a film over 7 years.  I will be joined by the subjects of the film, the owners and distillers of Still Austin Whiskey Co.  

In order to receive the full grant amount of $2750,  I must also raise in matching cash donations half the grant amount of $1375.   I am asking for pledges through June 24th to help me achieve this goal of getting the full grant to be able to put on this community event.
