BENEFITING: TIBETAN VILLAGE PROJECT
EVENT DATE: Sep 10, 2013
Three short documentaries about Tibetan Village Project's (TVP) efforts to raise awareness for women's health, entrepreneurship and sustainable tourism in Tibet.
My name is Balbinka Korzeniowska and I am a filmmaker completing her Master’s in Directing at UCLA. As a humanitarian and filmmaker, I use film as a medium to promote awareness of people who are most in need.
I will be shooting three short documentaries for the Tibetan Village Project (TVP), a non-profit, non-political organization. The films will focus on three TVP initiatives: (i) women's health, (ii) entrepreneurship, and (iii) sustainable tourism. I hope that these films will raise awareness and inspire others to get involved, not just to donate, but to volunteer and become a part of an effort that relieves suffering and reveals our common experience.
To date, I have raised $5,000, but in order to fully fund the documentaries, I am asking for an additional $20,000. This money will cover travel, the costs of filming in Tibet for three weeks, and all postproduction costs.
Donations of $50 or more will receive a special thank you gift.
The film will be used to raise awareness of the Tibetan Village Project in the non-profit community but also in the film and academic worlds, in which I am immersed through my graduate work at UCLA.
