This is for our friends who speak or are learning Esperanto (no comments from haters, please):
A new documentary movie, La Plejpleja Festivalo, is being made about (and from footage produced at) the 2005 KEF, or Kultura Esperanto–Festivalo. Recently, Ribeirão Preto of Brazil launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the film’s completion and distribution.
This means that Esperantists from all over the globe (and I am one of them) can help bankroll the finished film, and score some goodies (such as a DVD Video of the film). Indiegogo uses PayPal to handle all donations, and the last I checked they are past the half-way mark to their goal of USD 2,500 (a modest amount, really).
The first step is to take a look at the video above and then visit the fundraising page (you’ll need to sign up with Indiegogo first) to decide how much you can give towards getting the film made.
Given how movies in the International Language are hard to bankroll and circulate (in a culture of national languages, some enforced by sheer will), I applaud the idea to crowdfund this one in the way Mr. Preto has chosen.
Se vi ŝatus Esperanton, bv. donaci kion vi povas. Elkoran dankon.
(If you like Esperanto, please give what you can. Thank you.)
[UPDATE 2012.4.12: I didn’t notice that this is a “fixed funding” campaign, meaning that it is indeed an “all or nothing” effort. My sincerest apologies. Please do help Mr. Preto reach his goal. If you can upgrade your pledge, don’t hesitate.]
