The second edition of the Toronto True Crime Film Festival is set to occur on June 14 and 15 at the Revue Cinema in Toronto. In advance of the festival, TTCFF has launched a campaign on IndieGoGo to help cover a potion of the costs of running the festival, which includes venue rental, guest travel and accommodation, screening fee, among other costs.
This is the second year that the Toronto True Crime Film Festival has raised money through IndieGoGo, with the funds raised last year greatly benefiting the festival, which included being able to host the International Premiere of Abducted in Place Sight, seven months before the film was released on Netflix.
For this year’s campaign, the Toronto True Crime Film Festival hopes to earn a goal of $7500 and offers a number of perks for contributors. Probably the biggest incentive offered by the campaign is a discounted festival pass for those who contribute $50 or more. Some of the other perks include Personalized Postcards, a Hunt the Killer subscription box, and a Concession Punch Card. In addition, the first 25 people to contribute $50 or more will also receive a Toronto True Crime Film Festival t-shirt.
The IndieGoGo campaign for the Toronto True Crime Film Festival runs until April 10, 2019
