Kickstarter November 2013 - Our Backers
In November 2013, Film at Eleven launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the $7,000 we needed to make a scouting trip to Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. We were so excited when we met the goal before we were even half way through the campaign - and we went on to nearly double our goal! Our crowdfunding approach was untested before this Kickstarter, but you proved our theory right: people care very much about the suffering inflicted by the use of rape as a weapon of war, and they are willing to put their money towards bringing this story to the broadest possible audience.
We want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported our 2013 Kickstarter campaign. Below is the full list of Kickstarter backers, and why they chose to give (in their own words). Check out photos from that incredible trip in our In the Field for The Uncondemned gallery, and keep an eye out for co-director Michele Mitchell's riveting (and often hilarious) production diary from the trip - coming online soon!
